That sucks man, but not catastrophic. The easiest and cheapest way is the file, either the triangle file or a thread saver file which is square and has 4 different thread pitches (1 on each flat side), they come in all different sizes. If that doesn't work the you can do as Jeff said and just taper the first thread or 2 down to the shaft and make the 2nd or 3rd thread you start. If THAT'S still is a no go, there are these thread recovery "nuts" you can buy, they're a clam shell nut basically, like you took a nut and cut it directly in half, perpendicular to the threads. You just put both halves on the shaft about half way down, trap them in the socket, and back it off the shaft. It'll clean up the threads as it makes it's way off. Those usually come in a set and they're not super cheap but probably cheaper than a new shaft. I don't think you'll need to go that far though, it doesn't look too FUBAR. Good luck brother...

I thought the NUT size on the axle was 36mm...or at least around that socket size is what I used when I had to redo my hub assembly. Shouldn't the re-threading tool be measured by the actual size of the axle BOLT? I think it was closer to an inch if that.

Maybe I'm getting this whole thing confused though...

If so, just ignore me.

Not sure man, I've used them on smaller cv shafts that my guys have messed up, we had this pretty old kit with SAE and metric applications but I can't remember what the largest was. The 36mm is a common axle nut size so I'd imagine they're out there. You should be able to recover yours just with a file tho man, doesn't look that bad...

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Well I ground down the last thread and managed to get the but to thread on. And of course with my luck the nut cross threaded and FUBAR'ed the threads. And the best part, it took so much force to get it off, while the car was in park and the ebrake on the I still managed to turn the wheel on the other side and rolled the entire car forward off the jackstand by a few inches. And my jack stands are damn sturdyImageUploadedByJeepGarage1408588689.501705.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1408588736.235069.jpg
