I've read a bunch of older threads about this subject, most with broken links to jnztuning.com . I hope to update some info and prices, and see if there is currently a better way. Prices are from ExtremePSI, seem to be mostly fair for OEM, and I can get everything from one place.
My shopping list includes:
3 U joints 100/per
2 carrier bearings 103/per
2 single use nuts 2/per
1 lobro boot kit 100
That's a round figure of 610. And I have to do the work myself.
Now I know the yoke recall kits are 52/per. If I press out the U joints, will the caps be okay to reuse? I know OEM units are a must.
Carrier bearings. I actually just found carrier bearings for a Dodge Colt from Hendrick Dodge pn MB505495 for 71/per, I feel better about this than 50 dollar Febest.
So I'm down to about 400 bucks.
Does this sound reasonable, or am I off track somewhere?
