So I can buy a 2002 escort for $200. but I need to replace the rear axle, how hard is this? I am quite familiar with junkyards, but I am not an expert at all.
Can I fix this with time and patience, or is there anything I could royally screw up?


is it, take out the old axle, get a used one and bolt it back in, spend some time getting the brakes on and wheels aligned?

Thanks for any info!

these cars don't have a rear axle, they have an independent rear suspension. if you need to replace the whole shooting match, it's doable, but you will probably need a torch to get some of the rusted bolts off.

what exactly is wrong with the car? was it wrecked?

"Crashed my ford escort did minimal damage to front bumper and driver side head light, but i bent the rear axel and i am no machanic. Great for parts car need to sell asap. call ................"

I will go see the car now. Im hoping they are just describing it wrong now. I can easily do the bumper and headlight. OR the car is totaled with damage all around, that they forgot to list. In that case I will stay far away from it.
