    My front tires are like a fingernail from wearbar on inside of tire, do to camber problems, Front Axel is Torn ( were brand new 3 months ago when i did swap). tie bar boot is torn. Hub bolt was loose, so it stripped itsel by bouncing around so now the wheel just like bounces in the hub, and brakepads... kinda obvious.

    bah, I just had to put on a new driver's side axle due to a split CV boot. The CV boot kit was 20$, a whole new axle was 50$. Much wiser to just go for the new axle. If even a little bit of sand or rocks gets in, it's only a matter of time before the bearing, seals, etc are shot.

    well what is messed up with your axle?? if the boot is cut open then you can just pay someoen to put some new grease and new boot for like 20-30 bucks.


    I got my GSr axles for 150 both of them, rebuilt with larger stems.
