Chrysler Lebaron Turbo...cracked axle

Asked by May 04, 2012 at 04:07 PM about the 1988 Chrysler Le Baron

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm looking into buying a 1988 lebaron turbo conv.  It's $1000.  Everything in great shape (cue ominous music)
EXCEPT it needs the center support bearing in the front passenger side axle assembly replaced.  The guy selling
says that it's a super rare part...hence the low price.  My question - is thus a complete deal breaker for me?  I am
not a mechanic, although I have some very talented friends.  Can this be fixed with another part?  I'd love to
get a deal..,but don't want a $1000 doorstop because I cant locate a rare $40 part.

it can be replaced with another transmission :p but from what i understand the transmission would have to be taken out in order to press the bearing out. I mean, i've never had a bearing go on me on a tranny b4 but that's what i would assume.
