I'm a noob

    I just bought a 1990 Integra RS.
    My daily driver decided to blow up on me, so I found this little "gem" really cheap.

    $500. Not bad for a car in decent condition. (or so I thought)
    The guy I bought it from said that the driver side half shaft was bad.
    So, I'm thinking, ok, just get that fixed and i'm good to go.

    not so fast. Now that I have the car, and it's payed for, i find out that BOTH axles need to be replaced. I have no brake pressure, and a badly leaking tire, the idiot chopped the entire stereo harness out, the windows dont roll up all the way, and the clutch is slipping like a whore on a slip n' slide... (ok, that one doesn't really make sence. but just use your imagination)

    So i'm a little pissed off.
    But i'm glad I have a car that can take me to work. But you know what, my job sucks anyway!

    can anyone give me some information about new axles?

    how much of a pita are they to replace?

    <edit> i found info on price for Oe as opposed to rebuilds from chain stores.

    What about the install?

    yeah, thx...

    It was $500... so I didn't expect it to be mint.

    I just wish is wasn't so damn cold (-8*F) so I could do some work on it.

    i paid $120 for my last pair of civic axles. call a few places first. they are easy to change if you have the right tools. pretty much undo the suspension and disconnect the hubs. i would do the clutch at the same time if you can.

    you are going to spend another $500-$700 to get it driveable.

    I can deal with the clutch, it only slips if I shift hard.

    I'm most worried about the brakes and the axles...

    Dood, it's -13*F up here right now.

    I'm not outside at all if I dont NEED to be.
    I've got a buddy who will be helping me out in the shop at his college.

    So we'll have a heated shop and all the tools we'll need.
    I just need to get the parts.

    Thou shall not speak condescending on thee Integra. Tiz blasphemy... and it is after all a beautiful B18A in there, and a fine piece of Honda engineering, despite its age.

    Anyways, you picked it up for $500? I would hazard a guess to say that it probably wasn’t that bad of a deal… Depending on how many kilometers are on it. My 91 RS went 413,000km before the timing belt snapped and smashed the valves… Replaced the heads, and then pulled it off the road a year later because the chassis need way to much work. But All in all, was well worth it. I have had to replace the axels, and they weren’t that expensive, I would be more concerned about your brake problem, because if you have no fluid leaks, it could be the brake booster, and that is very expensive to fix
