Your prognosis concerning the axles going bad reminds me of Porsche Turbo owner tricks to the cars that are tracked or abused on the street. At their 'annual' they would remove both axles, recheck the packing and boots, then replace them....but on opposite sides. This evens the wear in the CV joints and doubles the life of the axles because the internal balls are pressing on the opposite side of the joint. Lee and you others like me I thought would appreciate this.
