New Axle Or Used Axle??

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.

used.. actually see if you can get a re manufactured one..

and get a warranty on it.



unfortunately on that setup its not quite as easy to swap the shaft as it is on the IFS system. From what i have read they are a c-clip axle so they have to drop the pumpkin and everything.. so $700 may not be so bad.
