Well sort of Iput one on when my dad had it and about 35,000 miles later replaced again
I think it was just a cheap auto part.When to NAPA and paid about twice as much than my dad did the first time around and its a lot better part and really rides smoother.There are plenty of four wheel drive places online
that probably have the same grade or better
