anyone know where i can get a single ball for an axle? its always clicked a little around turns and i had to put in a new tranny last night and found that one of the balls is missing. i know this is really bad but i had to get to work today so i threw it in still missing a ball. now it clicks even more. does anyone know if i can get these seperately other than at a wrecking yard or something? or would it be worth it to just replace the whole thing

Re: axle bearing (sleepygreen2)

how do you loose a ball bearing i know there slippery little devils but thats not an excuse. is there any damage to the boot/ball housing. if it was me go to junk yard and rip one out

That's going to be a messy job at a junkyard, but it's cheaper than 60 for a new axle, especially if you have a good one already.
