I broke my ( right side drive axle ) inside the rubber boot and I finally got my BEST deal/quote from my local shop and both of their mechanics are 25 years experience/certified EACH,
Surprisingly enough they gave me a quote for used and new, down to the penny with tax parts and labor/warranty, NOBODY else I guess thought of actually calling "Dana" for NEW parts. ( I was under the assumption NEW parts did not exist)
I live in a town of less then 1000 people and the shop has been in town for 3 years now.
Used $649.57 TOTAL
New 1054,72 TOTAL
Parts include inner/outer shaft,u-joint,seal,rubber boot etc etc etc
Apparently this is a VERY RARE situation according to Ford, Dana and all other shops I got quotes from.
To be replaced
