so i am rebuilding everything on my ragged out car, the half shafts have gone out and was wondering about what they should cost. have seen them anywhere from $20-$700 a piece. what brand would you use? saw this site and it shows what i am talking about unless i am reading it wrong.....

btw, you will not where through axles at any highspeed. if you look at bmws since the axles go up and down only...unlike a fwd car you will not wear out axles, i still have stock ones in my car...and they do not make a single noise....best bet is to go with mevotech axles....i'm pretty sure they're guarrenty for life.

yeah, but i just found out that my car has an m3 diff with a locker or spool in it. it has jacked my half shaft all up. also it is messing up the tires. i just resently got under the car (too many projects) to start rebuilding it. was going to replace driveshaft and ring and pinion, but neither where the stock ones. i just thought that these cars had a real stiff lsd, i am replacing this crap thing with a 60% lsd. the car is sitting on my lift with no rear end. thanks for the info, bmw has already taken too much of my money, whats a little more?!
