No it was some place in Langley I think. My CV's are totally different then yours. You have a live axel setup, while I have vacuum actuated. They only did it from 98 to 00.5. I can convert to a live axel, but then if a CV snaps or something happens to the front end, I can't unlock them and drive back in 2wd.
But yours are really easy to find. Lucky you lol
By the looks of it the CV's were original, so I think they just wore out more than anything. I have 265's on there now, so I don't think that helped, but it wasn't the cause of the problem. Both sides have been clicking, and the drivers side literally blew up lol. I was coming up a fairly steep rocky hill, and the wheel got caught between 2 big rocks, bound up and then snapped. I wasn't being an idiot and abusing them, like I said they probably wore out.

Please don't. It hurts already to see IFS under there. This thing has to take me to school so I can get my welding ticket. I can't have any down time. Once school is over, there is a possible 60 rear and 44 front. But it hurts lol.
