Hey all done alot of googling and searching but drawing a blank 

 

Does anyone have any guidence on parts info so that I can rebuild my rear axles and cvs? not really keen to pay 800 per side for new ones, alternatively anyone know a more cost effective replacement part? 

 

If I have to buy new ill look at getting something aftermarket from the driveshaft shop and look at diff/subframe/hub/rear brake conversions 

 

Front complete axles/cvs and parts seem to be ok to source 

 

My mate pulled mine out and has popped the shaft out of the triangle spider gear, they felt a little sloppy before, I may just buy a boot kit and see if I can just reassembly and repack with grease. 

 

Do the front outer cvs fit the rear? and can I use the front transmission side cv kits with my diff cups? 

 

My front Axles/CVs are from an RVR and are fine ( may do the boots on them at the same time as the rear however)

Take them to a driveshaft reconditioning place, should be around $100 to have them rebuilt.

800 per side? LOL!

That does not sound right to me, not even through Mitsubishi.

I might be looking up the wrong part number but this is what I found for new ones

Thanks for the tip on a reconditioning place will contact some and see what they say, happy to rebuild them myself if I can get parts :s but if its $100 a side I can live with that

Quotes so far to rebuild (emailed every Driveshaft shop in Melbourne) 

 

MS driveshafts: Rear Driveshafts Reco Mitsubishi Lancer AWD Cost $500 x 2 LHS & RHS (not sure if that's $500 for the pair or each!) 

 

I may just bite the bullet and get a boot kit along with a front inner/outer CV replacement kit and see how they compare to the rears (worse case I have parts to rebuild the front cvs) will report back with more quotes once I get them

Try CV Centre in Dandenong. Really helpful and knows his stuff.

I had a couple of shops try to source a CV boot for me but I only ended up with something that was "close enough". Unfortunately I broke the clip for the outer CV putting it back on, so I rang around and took the lot into CV Centre.

He took one look at the shaft and the replacement boot I had, went over to his parts bins and pulled out the perfect replacement. He sorted out the clip, offered to put it all back together for me and charged me stuff all for it.

The response back from Mark at CV center was as per below 

 

 

Unfortunately we can only service and reboot these driveshafts, I hope that’s all they need.

To do this service you will be looking at $132 inc gst.

 

Pretty cheap to service them however, may roll the dice and drop them into him when I get the chance and see what they come out like :)
