looks like i goofed. appears it twasnt the wheel bearing afterall. all that work and aggravation ('_") for nuthing ARG !. looks to be a bad cv joint. so when pulling these shafts will the trans fluid all leak out in the process ?deos that mean the seals have to be replaced too ? one on the trans and one on the other end right ? I MUST BE CURSED ? thanks

It's best to replace axle seals when the axle is swapped, but not required unless they are leaking.

You may lose some ATF, but not much, usually less than a quart. Have a couple quarts handy to top it back off when you're done.

also i found an axle at Rock auto. it looks to be the right one, if they send it out and its not the right one. will they take it back and pay the shipping ? anybody ever deal with them before ? any way to find feedback on them ? thanks

If it's not right for your vehicle they will take it back and pay for shipping (once got a Wrangler thermostat when ordered for my van). If you ordered the wrong part (ie: you need 2WD driver but bought 4WD driver), you pay for shipping and a small restocking fee. They are a good company.

Most likely it will be an ABS axle. You should be able to install it whether or not you have ABS.
