    I checked them out, currently out of stock of the one I need unfortunately.

    Besides Rock Auto, any other places with reliable remanned or new axles?

    Numerous axle choices at RA. Pick one and check reviews.

    I agree. If one has ripped, the other isn't far behind. I also agree with replacing the whole axel. If it's been slinging grease then the CV hasn't been lubricated properly. You also don't know how badly the CV has been contaminated. You'll pay more but it will take less time and you'll know the CVs are in good shape.

    Quick question, are there different axle shaft lengths that I should check before ordering? I checked the axle that's currently on my vehicle and from each metal band securing the interior side of each boot to the other the metal shaft is about 4 inches as best as I could measure. Just eyeballing the 661009 on RA axle the shaft looks to be an inch or two longer than mine. Is this an issue or am I just overthinking it?

    Imo you're overthinking. If it was me--give them vehicle info, along with what side you need--making sure it's a reputable brand--order it, done! Def don't buy any chinese knockoff.

    GM # 26069244 and includes the new spindle nut and washer, don't re-use the old ones and make sure they torque it down to the proper spec as not doing so will trash the hub.
