CV axles
Great price, quick shipping. Looking to install today. Just a note, maybe I missed this note , but the pair came and are two different lengths and two different part numbers... Possibly for a left and right side but not sure. Can't rate with stars yet until they are installed but I have to put something. Like I said maybe I missed it in the description, will look for "left & right" markings

Does this support cars with abs setup?
Chris W on Oct 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My car has anti lock brakes and i installed these axles.
These CV axles do not interfere with anti lock sensors.
So these won't fit on a 2008 impala SS?
Henry S on Jan 26, 2018

These items are listed to fit your vehicle. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order with one of our customer service representatives, please feel free to give us a call.
I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with the crosslace wheels which wouldn't allow me to remove the axle nut while the vehicle is still on the ground. How would I go about removing the axel nut in this case?
Kade M on Nov 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: An impact gun or breaker bar and socket is the way to remove the nut. You need to have someone apply the brake to lock the axle from rotating.
