GSP Rear Axles

Hey guys,

Does anyone have experience with these?

The price is... pretty cheap - and normally I would shy away - but the fact that Turner sells them lends a bit of confidence.

Please let me know if you have any experience with them. I'm either going to do this - or just the CV boots.

Holy crap... $50 for an axle??? Even with the exchange to Canada, this would be a killer deal if they were decent.

I just looked up the axles on a Canadian site... GKN, just over $400 EACH!!!

Just ordered a set. If Turner sells it, it has to be quality and at that price...

Watch for for the outboard boots rubbing on the shocks.

Reality check- at $50, these are going to be pretty low quality.
Even in China, good metallurgy and machining is not free.

Will they work?

Let us know how it goes!

Back when I was slinging parts ... I'd try to steer guys away. Had at least a %50-%75 return or unhappy customer rate.

Just because Turner and ecs sell them doesn't mean they are good.. You're better off rebuilding your old used ones. This has been covered 100 times

$50 axles.. You get what you pay for

Advance Auto would sell these. Even on their site, the reviews talked about lifespans measured in days.

Ultimately, for normal people, the best answer is to reboot/regrease a used axle.

I emailed Turner about the axles - here is their response:

"Those axles are good if you need a quick cheap replacement for the time being. You would really want to put an OEM or an OE axle in there though for the long run."
