need a new new axle?

Bud's Brake and Wheel Parts Inc. on E 19th Street in Bakersfield Ca. just replaced the axle in my 88 Lil Bigfoot.
It's a small family owned business that's been there for years.
Several places didn't want to touch it because some frame modification was required.
I paid $602.02 for the entire job. That included modifying the frame.
I had 3 other prices and they were all over $800.00.

If you live in Central California and need springs, regular axles or torsion axles Buds is the place to go.
