Proposition 65: This product may contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

This kit includes all the parts you need to switch over to our GoWesty heavy-duty rear drive axles. These fit 2WD with automatic transmission only.

This GoWesty exclusive gets you super strong chromoly axles, with super strong Porsche 930 Turbo-sized CV joints. (Note: Chromoly steel, a blend of chromium and molybdenum, is considerably stronger and more durable than standard 1020 steel.) These axles also feature a special torsion bar design: they are engineered to twist or "spool up" to prevent shock loads (and the associated damage) to the drivetrain and also to prevent the axles from snapping under extreme loads. We have also taken these axles and added an extra snap ring groove on the inside of the CV joints to prevent the axle from floating too far in or out and causing noise and damage due to knocking into the drive flanges.

This kit comes with all the parts you need, right down to the snap rings and all new bolts. 

Kit includes:
• Two (2) axles
• Four (4) German GKN/Lobro CV joints
• Four (4) CV boot/flange assemblies
• Eight (6) snap rings
• Two (2) inner drive flanges - Rebuilt OR Brand new forged & heat-treated
• Two (2) outer CV flanges/stub axle assemblies - Rebuilt OR Brand new forged & heat-treated
• Two (2) axle nut cotter pins
• 24 bolts

Note: We do not include grease with this kit. You can choose your favorite grease to use when assembling. We recommend the excellent Redline CV-2 Grease (two tubs will provide enough to do the job and have some left over for other uses).

Assembly required. Some installation tips (including important torque specs) are included—but not complete installation instructions. You will need the proper tools and experience to install these axles. If you don't feel 100% confident in your ability to do this job, please have a professional shop perform the installation. 

• The larger 930 CV joint will not clear the trailing arm with the bearing hub bolted in place. It will be necessary to at least loosen the four bolts that hold the bearing hub and tilt it so that the larger stub axle can be installed. We highly recommend that the rear hubs be removed entirely—cleaned, inspected, and re-lubricated, since removal of the old stub axle and installation of the new one will likely introduce dirt into an otherwise sealed bearing system.

• The fit between the inner splines of the new CV joint and out splines of the axle are not as tight as the original (smaller) CV joints and axles. This is normal!

• Only three circlips per axle are used to constrain the CV joints. The transmission side CV joint needs both an inner and an outer circlip. The wheel side CV joint only receives a retaining clip on the wheel side of the CV.

• We recommend using a pair of snap ring pliers to replace the CV drive flanges on the transaxle.
