    Default CV Axle repair doesnt look correct - help

    Just got back from the shop. Installed a new cv axle because failed inspection (1999 chevy suburban 4x4 5.7L ls). Took to mechanic to fix. The new part has a 'gear' that appears to be rubbing. Something doesn't look correct. The driver side looks different. What is wrong?

    Definately the wrong application.
    I'd take it back and have them get the correct parts.
    Just because it fits doesnt mean it's a suitable substitute.

    Yeah, that ain't right. The gear thing is a tone ring for the ABS and traction control systems, and is supposed to be behind the rotor by the speed sensor. There may also be another tone ring by the sensor, but it's still the wrong part for that truck. Definitely bring it back and have the right part installed.

    The upper and lower balljoints are covered in crud still. I wonder how he got that axle in there without removing the spindle at least partially. And the clearance between that lower ball joint stud and that erroneous tone ring look awful tight...

    X2 what Crawdaddy said. It's an ABS exciter ring. Definately installed incorrectly or the incorrect part for the truck. Have them correct it.
