    Why don't ya just get a new one? Most places have like a year warranty so if it breaks you can just get another one for free. Brand new axles are like $70 for my car.

    I took mine to a local shop and they charged like $10 to reband my axle.

    No need for a new axle, go to Pepboys, Autozone, or whatever, and buy some bands, might be a whole $5, and some grease. then just undo the old band, slather in the new grease, and reband them. Or pretty much any general mechanic should be able to do it for a few bucks more.
