BTW the gear oil in the diff smells horrible! Now I have a GKN Loebro (OEM supplier). Verdict-I saved no $$ going with cheap parts.
I am going to mic up both axles once I pull the old one out, I'm curious to see the difference.
I am probably gonna do the same. the cardone axle is just leaking from the diff seals. horrible smell when diff oil gets onto the exhaust manifold.
