Aren't OEM Honda Axle's remanufactured too? :donno:I would not touch a cheap or aftermarket or reman axle for a TSX with a 10 foot pole. They all suck as near as I can tell.
Notes in addition to what is mentioned: If you only need to do the inner joint you do not need to remove the nut at the spindle. Also, rather than hitting the lower control arm with a hammer to release the lower ball joint, you can use a much simpler technique found here:

My aftermarket (passenger side only) axle shook the whole car when accelerating from 30-40 mph. Thanks to this board, I went back to the repair shop, and asked them to rebuild my original axle. Luckily for me, the repair shop made the correction by rebuilding the original axle, and installing it free of charge.Is there a way to tell if I have oem or reman axles? I just bought my car and asking the previous owner is pointless, he either doesn't know the answer or plays dumb.
The dealers sell both new and genuine-branded reman axles. So be aware they are not the same things.Aren't OEM Honda Axle's remanufactured too? :donno:
Unless you're talking about aftermarket remanufactured then yeah they're not that great. Raxles are real good axles from what I heard as they rebuild OEM axles. When my passenger side inner cv boot was torn though, I called up Raxles and they said that they haven't had a TSX axle for years So I guess YMMV :laugh:
It can be a bear to get that one out. You'll need to use different methods...perhaps getting a piece of wood to hammer against to try and knock it out?I'm replacing the inner joint and I'm having a bit of trouble getting the passenger side off the splines. What's the best place to apply pressure to remove the inner joint off of the extension shaft splines?

For many years, the much-ballyhooed invention of the wheel has overshadowed the most likely, near-simultaneous invention of an equally important modern innovation: the axle. Without the axle, the wheel would not do anyone much good.
