Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on

For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

CA Tuned HD axles!

    Just broke one of my CA Tuned axles on my m60 car last night. Rolled into full throttle in 1st and it let go. I'm just running 300 treadwear street tires, nothing crazy. I've been to the drag strip many times, and they've handled some pretty solid launches. It's been 4 years, and about 25k miles since I've installed them.

    Got it towed home late last night, will tear the axle out tonight to see what happened. The inner joint is still bolted firmly to the diff, but the axle shaft does not spin with it. So either the cage broke, the shaft broke, or the splines stripped. My subframe has new poly bushings, trailing arms have new OEM rubber, the suspensions is aligned with -1* of camber and 1/16" toe, trailing arms are not bent. The car is low, so there is a bit of negative angle on the axle shafts, but not what I would consider excessive.

    Sucks to see they are no longer available. I guess I'll just replace with OEM GKN/Lobro.

    Igor said he would take care of it if I shipped them back which is awesome
    but I'm concerned it will do it again since the boot is bigger
    Urgh, I hope this isn't happening to my set as well, but from reading these posts, it probably is!

    I'll need to check when I am back home later in the year.

    A return/fix will be annoying/difficult since I am in Australia :(

    I had this issue in the past and was told to send the axles back. I got the replacement axles in and I noticed the boots were smaller. they no longer rub the e-brake and haven't given me any issues. As long as they hold up, I have no real complaints.

    They look like stock CV's to me.
    Maybe still using their chromoly shafts.
    I liked the bigger CV's. Typically it isn't the shaft that breaks...

    uhm, i was going to drive up there and have my outer boots replaced but not if im not getting my HD's back.

    Any rebuilding shop can swap boots only (I hope)

    Yeah that is essentially what happened with mine except the boot split and sprayed grease everywhere. I emailed them because all I asked for was a replacement boot and they sent me the wrong size. I was then told to send the whole axle back and they would send a replacement. Unfortunately, after waiting a month, the replacement that did come does not appear to be the same fit/finish/design as the original which is concerning. :(

    you can see it was rubbing the trailing arm as well, so when i replaced these with my stock CV's i ground some material away so it won't happen again when i get new ones but I'm not sure about the e-brake…..

    ill have to find my pictures
    it seems like the boot is just to large because where it rubs the line can't be moved
    i emailed them and i hope they can just send me new boots to save shipping

    This wasn't entirely due to the design of the axle but there was an issue w/ clearance on the e-brake cable where it enters the rear hub/arm. The outer boot sits very close to this and wound up rubbing a hole in the boot spewing grease everywhere. Not the fault of CATuned but just something to watch out for...

    What has me concerned is that the replacement I was sent looks nothing like the 'HD' axles I originally paid for leaving me wondering whether this axle is truly 'HD'.... these things cost a pretty penny to begin with, so time will tell...

    The axle on the other side has had no issues whatsoever.

    I noticed the same thing, but my issue was only on one side. It hasn't leaked on the other side, so I'm guessing they seem to be alright without the clamps.
