cause axel swaps are so cool, fixing a leaking seal is not impressive.

edit: I re-read and his axel is bent.... so a new one is probably in order. Like everyone else said, find one from a xj/zj/tj with the same gear ratio and swap it in.

I would buy a complete axle ready to bolt in.

Find out what gear ratio you have and I'll find you an axle.
