    Default 205/306 stub axles & bearings

    Bought and received new stub axles, bearings and seals for a rear beam rebuild.

    eBay sight in UK. Cheapest I'd seen in a long time.

    $170 delivered. Look and feel like descent quality.

    No real differences side by side of OEM stub axles.

    My experience is also that you may also need to finish machine the insert end of the tube to correct the interference fit on the trailing arm. Mine were 0.13mm different side to side.

    I think best approach is to press the old ones out (took about 20T) and then freeze the new ones in once you've got the tolerances right.

    Cheers.

    I have a 12T press and sometimes the old shafts won't budge. So whilst the press in loaded up, I warm the arms up with the oxy torch. That gets things moving. I've never had any trouble fitting new shafts. Always at room temp.

    I bought a set of these for the 306 but I might just put them in the 205.

    Matthew, not sure what the specs for your axle shafts are, but the ones I bought were a much larger inner bore so that the big ARB I bought would fit through. The originals were a pretty neat fit over the spline, the new ARB was quite a bit larger diameter than the splines. It is awesome now, put the jack under the front jacking pad and both wheels come off the ground together with the rear wheel dropping less than 15mm between loaded and floating.

    Good question, given the ARB is coming out for new rubber seals I will check. Sounds like trouble ahead for me too then? I have a bar froma Xsara VTS, 23 mm for another car.
