Front axle on 94 Chevy 1500 4x4

I've removed the broken left front axle and would like to know the best/easiest way to install the new one. It looks like I have to remove either the shock or the sway bar support pin ? (The old one came out because it was in two pieces.)

Well first you need a floor jack to put under bottom a-frame, then unhook shock from bottom a-frame or take off completely its up to you, unhook sway bar from bottom a- frame, and remove caliber off rotor and hang it off to the side, when all thats done you will have to pop the bottom ball joint, then you can put in new axel. Should not take more than 2 hours to do.

How to remove front axle on a 1996 Chevy Corsica


I question the statement that the axle may be broken and that you cannot push it either. If there is an axle problem then you would be able to push it as there would be nothing to stop it from moving as it won't now in any gear Look some where else like the park brake stuck on ( not being able to push it) or the auto stuck in park or the brakes stuck on. If auto check flexi plate is ok at torque converter and there is oil in the gear box. If manual check that the clutch is engaging and not being held off by a faulty master cylinder

CV joints are getting bad in my 94 topaz. Bought whole other 94 topaz with bad engine for parts. It has almost new axel shafts cmplete that were put in. I want to remove them from junk car and install in...


the very best thing to do is get an auto manual for your car,they cost about $20.00 at auto zone or advance auto parts,even nappa auto parts should have what you need. fortunately for you ai that the 94 topaz is not really that hard to doe the transmission replacement on. the book will have step by step instructions and tips to save you questions and time.both front wheels have to come off,the cars going to have to be up enough off the ground so the transmission will clear to come out from underneath the car.if you're only replacing both axles,there's no need to remove the transmission.i want to be clear with you on that issue.front wheel drives are'nt that complicated to work on,it's just that your used to rear wheel drives right?take my advice please just buy the book and you'll see the section on axle replacement,follow those directions and you wont have problems.my only question is this,are the transmissions on both cars the same? if so then it's a go! thank you for choosing fixya.com and wish you the very best of luck!

Replacement procedure for drive axle 94 chevy cavalier


1. Remove tire
2. Remove axle nut. (this is a large nut, maybe 19mm or even bigger. these can be tough to get off sometimes without an air gun.)
3. Remove cotter pin and nut from the lower ball joint.
4. You can first try hitting the side of the ball joint with a hammer and if it doesn't pop it loose you will have to use a Pickle fork. If you have to use a pickle fork and the ball joint is old it may get damaged so you may want to replace that while your at it.
5. If necessary use a hammer to tap on the axle to push it out of the hub assembly. Once it is out of there you can give it a tug and see if it will come out without a fight from the transmission. If it doesn't come right away you can get under there with a large screw driver and pry it out.
6. Install new axle carefully into the transmission and make sure you push it all the way in, than just do the above steps in reverse order and your set. Good luck!
