One more time I've found lousy workmanship by the guy who once owned my car...he thought he was a mechanic and once more I've found evidence he was a bone head. Pulled the rear axles today to replace a bad seal on the drivers side. Spun the bearings to check them and noted a poc mark next to one of them. Removed the bearings to check and found the surface under the bearing all messed up. Previous owner used a torch to remove the bearings in the past and didn't even have enough sense to stop when he got to the inner race and cut right into the axle. I looked at 'em for an hour before I got up and went to the salvage yard to get replacements. I mean, how dumb can someone be? He ruined both axles simply because he was too cheap to take the axles to an automotive machine shop and have the bearings removed/replaced with a press.
