That is what I figured. Especially with removing and reinstalling the stub shaft with RTV. I might lube the actuator also while I have the assembly off.

Any tips on removing the CV axles? I saw...

I did show him the thread, and he though fab'ing the whole part would be the best approach. Not sure it would be $300-$500 to fab the part (or that it would require CNC'ing), but I'm sure Jerry...

Is 4.88 Too Deep for a 2003 V6 & 33's?
