Intermediate shaft rebuild

Spent some time today disassembling, cleaning, refreshing then reassembling my 1989 Lebaron GTC intermediate axle for my 2.2L turbo manual.

Re: Intermediate shaft rebuild

Have you found a source for new carrier bearings?

How are you addressing the issue with the worn out internal spline in the carrier shaft? Or did you find one that hasn't been beaten on? All the ones I have are sloppy.

I always have used a press to separate shafts- no heat and they have never been “loose” or sloppy.
The bearing is $30 bucks at Grainger/McMaster/MRO.
Window weld them to bracket.
I can rebuild the whole unit and put a brand new axle on it for $233.
NAPA axle= $188
Bearing =$30
Ujoint =$15

Advance Auto sells the axles for ~$70 too

I would charge $75 labor to do the job plus shipping.
Depending on what brand axle you wanted it would be

$308
Or
$190

Are you talking about this play?

Re: Intermediate shaft rebuild

I had to put the camera down to push it all the way on and take off w 2 hands.
0- side to side play- tight.

There are a lot of guys who are still crazy about the two piece axle system. You could make some decent money selling rebuilt setups!

I doubt it. As crazy wanting two piece axle they may be, most are not willing to pay...

Re: Intermediate shaft rebuild

There was a group buy a long time ago.

Billet 6061 Carrier bearing fixture for equal length drive shaft

Re: Intermediate shaft rebuild

Is there a good U-joint P/N to use? I haven’t needed one yet, or looked into it, but figured it’d be good to post here..

Well after researching the factory P/N’s. It’s a 1306/7260 U-joint.

Re: Intermediate shaft rebuild

Can you check the part number for the carrier bearing you show. I purchased one and it seems way too small. The bearing I have is a SKF 63004-2RS-C3.

Thanks
