$900 to fix axle, hub bearing, etc.

Took my car to my friend's mechanic today and found out that it's gonna cost $900 to fix my axle. (I jumped a curb and f*cked up my axle) I found out I bent both of the front rims, the driver side one is bent pretty badly and wobbles when I drive, I need a lot of new parts...This sucks big time...Does anyone know where I can buy one or two stock GTS rims?

Axle knuckle grease, that could be the fluid. Buy an axle from a scrap yard. You will save a ton. thumbsup

wheel bearing grease? yep get one from the junkyard cheap and put it in yourself. Get the hub too. PM me if you need help installing it. I just did my clutch job.

how's your rotor?

I get my kicks on EC.

The knuckle looks like this, there is one on the drivers side that goes from the tanny to the drive axle to the wheel & one on the passenger side which goes from the tranny, gets bolted to the back of the engine block, connects to the right wheel.

The knuckle is packed full of grease which is usually grey, it liquifies over time as it breaks down.
