New cars you replace the whole axle. Not on a gmc.hi u all . driver side cv boot damaged.. mechanic say's replace the whole assembly . where can i get this ?? 6 month anniversary of xpb 78/455 thanks larry
Jim Bounds mentioned on the phone the other day that someone was making spacers to make new Toronado half shafts work with the GMC's. Old style or new part with non-oem splines; wouldn't matter anymore . Just use the whole new part. I'm not sure who is doing it or where to get them but it might be worth looking into. Sure would be nice to grab a new part off the shelf and install it without having to do all the fiddling around with the old shaft.Buying a replacement drive axle for a Toronado may not work. Many are imported form China and spline is different and the piece as supplied is too short so you can't swap in the actual shaft.
