And that's great that they can re-used a damaged nut and have no ill effects. I wasn't even aware of those type of lock nuts being used until I had the car in for a rear area vibration at speed. Then it was pointed out to me that I had a loose connection at the coupler and it had damaged the front pinion seal and bearing.
And thank you for the information about rear's on ebay! I will definitely be looking into that! I only quoted $3500 because that's what the dealer shop supervisor had told me. I knew I could get them cheaper elsewhere... it was the sting of the dealer telling me that the damage was caused by them, and they weren't going to fix it that irked me.
