Default IRS *Pics & Problems***UPDATED***

Can you say can of worms? Im getting good at it!

Just look at what the passenger side Half-Shaft has been slinging around....ITS EVERYWHERE. And the color of it? WTF am I dealing with here? Its like a swampland of automotive grease, dirt and road grime.
SHEESH!








And these bushings?????? WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




The only good thing about all this is simple...
It will all be fixed correctly, and Ive had the chance to become mechanically accustomed with about every square inch of this turd...er...Cobra.

Upgrade bushings with the kit from fulltiltboogieracing.com.

CV boots tear. It happens.

when axle grease gets enough moisture/water in it, the color becomes that of milky brownish crap.

I was waiting for this

Im not upset at the problems, nor how many the car has.

I just get aggravated because every corner of the car has something wrong with it!

Its just a 'more work for me' kind of upset.

oh man ive had to clean up that axle grease before, it smears really well, on the bright side none of those areas will rust the bushings going bad might be from the vibration dampner bracket is still in there and normally that has to be left out so the bushing doesnt get over crushed

The green stuff is definetly from broken half shafts, I have that too. The brown stuff might be a leaky diff and over time it just gets gooey and brown thats my guess.

Dont get frustrated Zack it will pay off in the end, cant wait to hit the cruise nights with the silver cobras

Alright the halfshaft is out and it was not the boot. It was the round rubber gasket that was causing the leak. It appers as though it developed heat cracks, see pics below.

Check out the next post!

So, digging deeper into this I discover yet another ridiculous oversight and lack of all quality control.
What to these aftermarket halfshafts cost, somewhere in the neighborhood of a grand? WHAT THE HELL PEOPLE? What kind of money do you have to spend to buy a quality product????????

Is that from the inner or outer shaft? I am pretty sure the inners are the stock parts that are removed and placed on the outers. That seal don't look familiar and I replaced my outer with a used outer, took the tripod apart, etc, but don't remember that piece. Could also be that whoever reassembled, didn't even notice the needle bearing fell out, right?

The needle bearing cant fall out, there is a metal cup that prevents it.

And this is all from the inner shaft.

Where am I gonna find 2 needle bearings? SHEESH!
