Check out Schucks.com or visit your local Schucks, Kragan or whatever they call themselves in your area. You can get new ones for the same price and they come with a lifetime warranty.

I found them for $79on the partsamerica site. Has anyone had luck with these rebuilds, or am I better off trying a salvage yard. It's a lot of work to replace them even if they are under warranty. Thanks

People on the forum using rebuilts (from Auto Zone et al) have had mixed success. There are several instances of the axles being bad at installation or failing within the 1st year. Of course, you could have the same results with an axle from a boneyard and have no recourse.

One test to perform with whatever axles you decide (especially rebuilds - some rebuilders are nothing more than 'spray and pray' outfits) to use would be to grab each end and try and twist the axle torsionally back and forth. If you feel ANY play or looseness, the joints are shot.

IMO the axles are very easy to replace so you are well off buying them from one of these chain store part houses. At least you have the warranty should something go bad. My advice is to buy the least expensive axles with the lifetime warranty. Partsamerica has probably the best prices of anyone. I paid $69 for each axle.
