Just got off the phone with UFP, looks like they may help out with the cost of the axel. Not a done deal yet, but sounded like it would happen. If so I would only be out cost of repair/shipping which was not bad.07 Mobius LS--Razorback Red

The # I called was 931-968-9050 and I talked to Dennis... I installed mine myself and it took me about 3hrs to do by myself and that was with the boat on the trailer.. Just remember to measure your side that is still good and hasn't dropped because it can be kindof tricky to get them set back up since they are splined.. I just measured from the top of my frame to the bottom of the torsion with the wheels removed and set both sides up that way...

After you realize how hard it is to pry the trailing arms off (they'll probably be stuck on pretty good), I strongly suggest cleaning off the new splines thoroughly with a wire brush (I used my wire brush on my drill) to get as much debris off as possible (they are taped over during shipment). I think I put some anti-seize grease on the new splines too. Also a brake bleeder was a helpful tool for the project instead of hand bleeding it at the coupler, and an air compressor with a chisel was excellent for getting the trailing arms off of the splines.
