CV axles for 81 4x4 Pup?

Postby thetundrawolf » Thu Nov 21, 2019 2:54 pm


My CV axles have had torn boots for a time, and I know I need to take care of it. I see that replacement boot kits are $60-100, and I see some CV axles are that exact price... But, I cannot find any CV axles for my 81 Pup! At all! All the axles I see are for the Rodeo and Trooper 1988 and on... Do those axle half shafts work with my 81?

Many years ago I had torn boots on a vehicle

I purchased a repair kit thst came in 2 pieces held together with small bolts and nuts

Believe it or not they worked perfectly

Have no idea if available for your. Situation

Just my 2 cents....changing axles is allot of work
