I broke my rear axle for the second time, first time it was covered under warranty no problem. This time they are being pricks and dont wanna cover it and wanna charge me 1500 bucks which is ridiculous. so what im wondering, what are my opitions to do this the cheapest way.

Your San Jose area dealers can be little bitches at times and other times they are fine. Try another area dealer cause I know you have a few. The car should be driveable (at least mine was but it only had wrong wheel drive, LOL). If you absolutely can't get it covered, get the upgraded rear left axle. No matter what, you should also order the TT front diff mount and CPE rear diff brace and Whiteline rear sway and have that shit put on when the axle is being replaced.

Only one person ever found that to be true Thank you very much. LOL Mine could have been weakened from abuse prior to having the mounts or from that DSC mishap too. Can't say for sure. There has not been another reported case of a broken stock axle with both upgraded mounts besides me though.

I think there was a couple of people or maybe a few repeated instances of broken axles with just the front mount. With both mounts on like me, I was the one and only. It was 2nr that got the upgraded axle started for us that I ended up being the guinea pig on.
