the 4x4 did not work so i riped it to bits i found that the front diff wos full of water and all bearings are shot.so im going to go to a bearing company to get them thats not a problem
BUT as this would not of stoped the 4x4 working on the front i kept looking and fount that the front pasangers drive shaft stub axel that has all the balls in it had exploded lol
i donot know wot the axel is so how can i get a replacement.
my stud pattern is the same on the front and back so i guess it must b a suzuki front axel but wot sore help me please.
