you shouldn't drive it like that, just that CV axle needs to be replaced not the entire axle

Too bad you aren't closer. We could put a new one on in probably 20 to 30 minutes max.

Yeah I'd help you with it Koyn, but I sold my spares to Casey a couple months ago, otherwise I'd just let you have it.

That doesn't surprise me. The parts stores here rarely have anything I need in stock.
