Axle Shaft Replacement

I was doing Mustang things in my Mustang and took a corner a little too hot. Well long story short I whacked my right rear wheel and it sounds like the axle shaft is slightly bent.

How hard is it to take the ABS ring off the original shaft and get it back on to the new one?

Is there anyplace that sells the shaft with the ABS wheel already installed?

Thanks guys.

Yeah, there are plenty of places that have it but I'm trying to find one that already has the ABS ring installed because they're pressed on.

See if you could find a junkyard near you that has a squished Mustang. It seems like there's a lot of them out there you just need to call. Otherwise you'll need to find a machine shop to press the fitting on, or better yet get the replacement part and ask your local Ford dealer if they can just press it in place

I would say just go to the next Mustang show and wait for someone to wreck when they are leaving. Then throw them an offer for the axle.

Did the same thing in the snow, curb was buried under snow and drifted right into it. Went to Ford dealer and they wanted 700 to repair it. Bought an axle from Ford with abs ring already pressed on for about 300 I believe and changed it myself

Lol it doesn't seem like there's a ton of knowledge on the subject but I'm going to try to ask anyway.

Is the ABS ring actually pressed on or can you slide it on?

It's pressed on I've heard that you can put the ring in the oven to expand it a little and possible get it on yourself, IF YOU BUY A NEW AXLE FROM FORD THE AND RING IS ALREADY PRESSED ON.

I might go this route. It will double the cost though.

I took this into consideration but in the end it was worth it for me to get it done in one day, rather than buying. one and it possibly not having a ABS ring then having to find one of those, then finding a shop to press it on.
