The rear control arms are not adjustable from the factory. Someone thought they could adjust the proper camber of the tire based on the weight of the passengers... Epic fail! So, what is the fix? Go to or your local tire mechanic shop and get some adjustable rear upper control arms for a Mazda 5. On ebay I was able to pick mine up for about $85. I installed mine myself with a little blood sweat and tears, so I can't say what the installation labor price is. After installation get the shop to do a rear alignment and you will be good to go from there... Its sad that Mazda did this to everyone, but get it fixed and your tires will be fine from there.

Rear axle swap on a 89 ford bronco 2 4x4 auto trans cant find a matching axle that will fit and allow me to convert the drums to brakes

You might want to research Ford 4x4 Clubs or Bronco Clubs and things like Off-roading publications. Ford use to have performance displays at some Dealerships. There are some specialty shops which can shorten rear axles.and narrow rear ends. One thing to remember is that both the front and rear differentials need matching gear ratios. So whatever you do, think of pairs.

What's your problem?rear axle seal left side leaking

I don't know how much stuff costs - I do the work myself to avoid having to pay people to do it for me. I'd guess you'd probably get charged at least two hours for axle seals at ~$90/hour at a dealership... I wouldn't bother doing both sides but you can if you want (will probably add another 30min to an hour to the job). Totally guessing but I'd put the bill at around $450 from a dealership, and maybe $350 from an independent shop. Call around and see.

How to remove rear axel from ford crown victoria tne axel is loose and making noise leaking fluid i think it neds a new seal

do u mean the axle has "play" when u grab the tire and wiggle it up and down?? if it has play, then it propbably needs an AXLE SEAL AND AXLE will have to carefully inspect the axle itself where the bearing rides for any gouging or damage. THIS JOB requires a decent amount of mechanical skill. 1ST you need to remove the rear end COVER and drain out the gear oil into a drain pan.2ND remove the brake caliper and rotor . 3RD spin the" ring and pinion " around until u see a 5/16 bolt that passes thru from the pass. side to the drivers side. u have to remove this bolt. u will need to "hold "the gears from turning in order to break loose this bolt. 4TH remove this bolt and slide out the large metal ""PIN" that 'divides" the rear end in half. NOW CAREFULLY WITHOUT TURNING THE REAR END SPIDER GEARS,PUSH IN THE AXLE TOWARDS THE INSIDE SO U CAN REMOVE THE "C-CLIP" AT INNER END OF AXLE. now u can slide out axle and youll be able to replace seal and if needed axle bearing. let me know if u need more info.

Rear axle

My 2004 had the same problem at 102,000 kms, warranty was up at 100,000 kms. GM would not do a thing and was very rude about it. I figured at 4 years old, I should not need a whole new axle, but the bushings are not separate from the axle, so the whole axle had to be replaced. I found a fairly new axle (from a 2006 with only 16,000 kms on it) at a salvage place for $350 (would have been $500 new at the dealership). They scrap the vehicles and sell the parts, try one of those, you may get it much cheaper.
