Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2007 Chevy Aveo 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 31000 miles
The right rear axle bushing is worn, consequently it makes 'thumping' noise when driving over rough terrain. Both the axle and bushing are sold as a unit according to the mechanic at a cost of $640 + labor. Question: True? If so, can I have a bushing manufactured as a 'work-a-round' and not replace the axle? If no, what is the down side (risk) of not replacing the axle/bushing unit, other than thumping?
