    ok so heres the deal, its real cheap, rebuilt engine with 50k miles on it, it says on the post "power steering a little leaky but as long as it has fluid its workin haha. belts are a bit squeeky but prolly cuz i havent tightened em in a while", later when i contacted him he says it needs "driver side inner axle" idk what that is, would it be expensive and what do yall thing would it be a good buy ??, oh yeah heres the link to it -- http://corpuschristi.craigslist.org/cto/2712861621.html --

    Drivers side inner axle? Sould be solid axle, doubt he snapped an axle in that. Best bet is to just go look at it

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    It's just a Dana 44..not that hard to break one..
    It probably has a broken u-joint..
    If it has a locker up front, I wouldn't be surprised if it has broken stock internals on a 44...really easy with a locked front.

    I would inspect the frame real good! Perhaps you should search the web for hidden problems before buying.
