Default PT Cruiser Axles

I wanted to help "kill" a concern about a couple of question and comments that have come up on PT forums about axles.

Here is the company I have used for dozens of axles over the years and specifically 3 sets in the last 2 years for PT Cruiser's.

The company manufacture completely NEW axles for the NA, Turbo model as well the automatic and the manual transmission PT Cruisers.

They also have a line of other parts like hubs and suspension parts.

The specification are at least at Chrysler specification and the clearances and quality control seems to be very good.

In the many years of using them I have not had one fail under the warranty due to any manufacturing defect.

Comparatively speaking the prices are well affordable and your can buy them direct or on line for a pair less than 150.00 shipped.

SEE eBay seller: axlestore
or Direct:

IMO the best bearing to use are SKF.
SKF bearings are manufactured in so many countries it is very hard to find USA manufactured SKF bearing for some applications or even to order them. However SKF have held a reputation for quality control that is is very unlikely no matter what the origin of country that you get in the box you will have any problems with. They will randomly pull product and check for specification. If any are out of spec' they will pull the production run and adjust the machining for correctness.

I did a measurement of the bearing and the hub and found them to be very good and tight for clearance measurements.

In most places on the internet you can get a pair of these for around $60 shipped. I do recommend that you inspect the contents and make sure that they are clearly marked and manufactured by SKF.
