Replacing my axles and wheel bearings on my 08 KK. I just did the drivers side about two weeks ago. I went thru hell finding the right axles to begin with, was sent KJ axles, then had to suck it up and by the drivers side axle from the stealership. So now I'm ready to do the passenger side, and same deal. NO ONE in the world apparently--except the stealership--has either axle in stock, NOR can their manufacturers order any. It's a "return and rebuild" part ONLY. How is this possible???
Moreover, the dealer quoted me MORE for the passenger side (shorter) axle. Wtf?!
Its actually the fact that these vehicles are not that old yet. None have been on the road long enough to have gotten old and decrepit and just given away to junk like cherokees.
You have to wreck one so bad as to have nothing left to salvage otherwise the insurance company fixes it or it goes to auction to get fixed and sold used with a salvage title.
Way to go Fiat. Sell out and go back to where you came from.
Please disregard. I thought you were talking about OEM.
There isn't any aftermarket support yet. They have the part numbers but haven't started stocking yet.
The passenger side is way different from the driver side. There are also two pieces on the passenger side, of course they're sold separately. Mine failed at the spline where the two pieces go together. Dealer refused to look at it at about 10000 miles. Wouldn't cover after the lift when it got real bad, that's where the blame for failure went.
