Lets talk CV Axles
What is everyone using for B13 LSD axles nowadays since OEM one are not readily availiable.

We have done well with the RockAuto axles (new, not rebuilt) BUT we repacked them with CV2 Moly grease because these days the grease they use is complete crap and if you don't repack them, you are sure to have a short life. Anyway, 2 years and still going on them and we don't even own our B13 race car any more if that tells you anything?

I'm still running Raxles, and while they don't offer them anymore (because some people stopped sending back cores), I plan to call them and offer to ship them my own first to use as cores and see how that goes if I ever need to.

Oh, in case it isn't clear, it's redline CV2 grease you need to use.. make sure you squeeze out the crap they put in there 1st in the process.. its horribly cheap grease that is useless.

One of the reasons raxles last as long as they do is proper grease and silicone instead of rubber boots... its the simple things.... Some bean counter found that axle grease 'x' is only pennies on the dollar to the good stuff and besides, it'll sell more axles if you use substandard grease that causes the axles to fail as soon as warranty expires, right?
