Civic Axle Assembly Replacement Project

Today I replaced the front passenger side axle assembly on my 95' Honda Civic. It was much easier and quicker than I thought it would be, especially when my roommate Neal showed up later to offer a hand. (Literally one hand, since he injured his other in a recent motorcycle accident). One of the best benefits of being in the military is getting to use the on-base auto shops. For only a few bucks an hour you can use a huge assortment of tools and there are experienced mechanics available to offer tips and limited assistance. Pictures of today's job can be found here.

R, thanks for the compliment. You’re probably going to want to put spinners on that Bronco and fasten on a large Texas longhorn hood ornament.
