front axle replacement
 
hey guys just like the title says im doing both of my front axles on my 01 grand cherokee limited v8 qudradrive. i found the axles for a nice price and was just wondering what else should get replaced with theses like is there seals? i am going to be installing new hubs as well along with shocks "bilsteins" springs "eibach" sway bars front "edelbrock" rear "addco" and new drilled slotted rotors all the way around. I allready have drilled all the way around but they are warpped allready in less than a year warped like bad. So to fix this i am going with a more aggressive drilled and sloted design. was thinking about getting a 70mm tb also with a dynomax super turbo setup would you guys say yeah or nay to that one? thanx for the help

ok so sounds like you would agree theses i should def do? i will be doing them in about a month im hoping the droping it a inch and nicer swaybar set up helps with the road driving and cornering.

How about upgrading to Akebono calipers while your at it.... also dont forget to get anti-seize for the new hubs your installing, I replaced my old one and it was a pain to remove, I had to use a 3 prong puller on one side cause the rust baked in it.

X2 on the Akenbono Upgrade. If you go with the Drilled and slotted rotors there is a chance that they would be squeaking when you brake. Go with Slotted.

I would just look at the parts diagram and replace it if its cheap or looks worn.

I dont remember replacing a seal when I did both front axles, it was literally remove and install kinda deal... I did replace the hub, axles, rotors and brake pads, NO seal that I can recall.......
