Yep, $250 is a little steep. $95 would be much better.$94.99 for a good used axle from Power Sports Nation.
No, the change was in 05 - the 04 and earlier axle has threads - the 05 and later has no threads - the 05 used snap rings and the threads are on the sprocket hub. The earlier axle used nuts to pull the axle up against the bearings. The later design used a nut that pushed against a ring to tighten the axle into the bearings. Same principle, but opposite forces.I found a guy selling a 2001 trailblazer. I haven’t looked at it yet. But do you think the rear would match mine?
That machine has been run a long time with the bearings out to wear it down that much. And that answers the question I asked earlier about why you wanted to replace the housing... it'd be torn up beyond repair too.Hey. New is too much for me. Here are pics.
