I have one that I can sell you. The backing plate to pull out the old bushing was grinded slightly because it doesn't fit initially. Others had this issue too, it worked great though. I'm in Maryland so shipping should be cheap. If you're interested, PM me.

Like others I just stumbled across this thread and wished I'd done so sooner. I've been chasing a cyclical vibration for about 6 years. It's gotten worse lately. I've replaced most of my front end already including both bearings.

If anyone has a tool they are done with I'd gladly buy it and then pass it on.

Looking for a tool to buy. Will need to do this soon and would prefer to buy one pre-trimmed.

Mechanic with no grinder?

Make sure to take very little bits off at a time until it fits just perfect. I almost went too far, but it worked out perfect for me and the 1 or two other peeps it was passed on to!

Because the tool was such a shitty fit, I thought it needed to go back further than it did, which is why I dropped the fuggin thing inside... Had to remove and split the diff open to retrieve - hopefully this doesn't happen lol

Eh i kinda don't expect regular mechanics to have grinders. He doesn't do any type of fab work.. Its very frustrating dealing with my mechanic sometimes though.. He is convinced that i have to open the clamshell but I'm convinced you don't to get the bearings out. Isn't that what the special tool is for? Anyways i told him don't worry about it and if he doesn't want to do it ill do it no problem.. Well at the end of the day my mom calls me and tells me he got super offended and is all pissed off at me because he thought i was saying he doesn't know what he is doing or doesn't know how to do it or something..

On top of all this ECGS only sent me one seal..

EDIT: ok finally got through to my mechanic, thanks john for sending me that video. I sent it to him and he watched it and understood. I guess you don't do this type of thing very often when you are a mechanic lol.

Did any of you guys choose to go ahead and replace the CV shaft while you were installing the bushing? I got a remanufactured one from Cardone and I"m having a really hard time getting it seated back through the newly installed bushing. It almost seems like the OD of the CV shaft is too large or the ID of the bushing is too small. The CV shaft came off just fine but getting this new one on is a bitch.

I did replace my cv shaft at the same time with a cardone shaft. It was pretty difficult to get in, in fact I recall having to take a big flat screwdriver and a hammer and tapping it in so that the retaining clip would slide in and seat. I did not have any problems getting the clip through the bushing though.

Remember to insert the cv axle with the open end of the clip down. Seems to go in easier.
