Well the price on rock auto is just $80 plus they have the fastest shipping even to me and I'm in Germany.

If you have the same luck as I had with mine. . You'll replace only what's necessary but shortly afterwards you'll have to replace the other side :( Even with that said, I wouldn't worry with the opposite side unless it's questionable. I got three (yes three. . . one was defective :x ) from O'reillys for less than $50 each.

Yea I think just new boots and have a local shop rebuild would be fine. no need to rip it out again if I already have it appart.

If you haven't fixed the snapped side yet it's worth it to measure the outer diameter of the bearing seat int the hub and the inner diameter of the bearing seat on the knuckle just to make sure they are within tolerance and not shaved down. Take it from me. I went through 3 bearings in two months.

On the topic of axle availability and their prices. . . Can anyone tell me what would make one of these readily available axles $300?!

Occasionally I search fleaBay for hard-to-find pieces I have yet to find here and have seen these for a while now, at that price I wouldn't be surprised if they never sell.

should ask the seller. He is on this site. No clue what the difference between this and a rock auto axle is though.

Eh, not that important. . Just wondered if anyone that knew could enlighten me since that price seemed a little inflated.
