I had to replace mine after building up my front end. It was only $15 from the dealership (they had plenty in stock) if I remember correctly.

Not sure if any of the vendors will stock that.

yes and it plugs in BEHIND the shock tower, pain in the ass, you can slide the whole connector off of the mount or remove it from tower so you can see what you are doing.

edit actually the part that broke off maybe floating around inside your hub bearing now, may need new hub bearing also. I'm gonna call ya.

Hopefully you get that sensor situation straightened out. How hard overall were they to get in?

Get what in? The tube seals or the sensor?

I NEVER yank the sensor when I pull unit bearings/shafts. Unclip the connector and remove as a whole. Those sensors are a PITA to remove and damn near always break.

I think that's gonna be my approach if I ever do this again... The problem is all I did was remove the bolt on that side, I hadn't even started to try to remove the sensor. I have a feeling it was broken and being held in place by the bolt. Either way it's broken and I've gotta fix it now

nick i did the same thing on my old 2 door

the parts easy to change, the connector behind the shock/spring tower is a bitch but doable.
to get the broken part out of the unit bearing i used a small easyout and a pick, it took me maybe 15min to get the broken peice out of the axle, put the new in and my dash stopped looking like a christmas tree

funny thing is it was my right side also that broke, the left came right out
