Axle bender

Fixed the freaken slave. The plastic piece that looks like a cap inside the tranny, makes contact with the fork, well that was broken. Replaced it, and immediately got pressure back. Woot woot.

Whole new problem now. I got a little crazy at the lake, I bent the rear axle.

What can I use to replace? Stock? Is there something better?

there is much better options out there, price it out. i just made a pros and cons list with prices for a customer and to upgrade both axles to core 44s from g2 wasnt much less than putting one tons under it. the big question is what are you plans with the jeep? 35s and down or 37 and up? trail riding or crawling?

Don't plan to crawl it. More trail riding and dune fun. I went from stock gears to 4.88. It's my daily ride. Should my gearing matter? Once I make my choice, and I have that part of my jeep open, what else should i replace? The housing looks straight.

The rear axle on the driver side. The wheel doesn't spin straight. I don't intent to jump, but I get a little bit of air.

Sounds like you bent the flange. Pretty common even with chromo rear shafts.

Replace with a brand that warranty's bent flanges...one I know for sure is Ten Factory. There is another I think but the company escapes me.

You want a big boy fix....Full Float rear, but that comes with a price.

It was late last night. Soon as i get home ill tear it apart and report back.
I'll look at the flange, hopefully that's it. Easy fix and be ready for Pismo Dunes this weekend. If axle im busting a mission to get it ready.
