Front axle woes. Repair, replace, or ?
Have leaking seals and growly bearings on the IFS front axle on my 1997 k2500.
I'm not sure I'm a good enough mechanic to rebuild it. Are there places where you can exchange them, or should I take it to a driveline shop, or what?Minneapolis area - 1997 K2500 regular cab long bed + 8.5' Western Unimount plow + modified transmission + 2nd battery + modified camper charge circuit + 1971 Cayo camper -and- 2004 4x4 Suburban 2500 8.1 + Maxbrake controller + 2nd battery + modified trailer charge circuit + Reese receiver, pulls 30' Airstream trailer

on another note, I would not buy a used one. (not rebuilt) The warranty company put the one that is in my truck in it last year. They claim it came from a truck with 60,000 miles on it. Well, a year later I am in the same boat, just with an expired warranty.
