Inner Cv Shell

Upon removal we found the shell of the inner CV was busted, the boot torn loose, and some of the trunion bearings spit out. We stopped by the local auto parts shop and ordered up another spare, but ran into a small glitch. Since the busted CV bell rendered the axleshaft unrepairable, it didn't qualify as a core, and thus the price went from $50 to $100. Luckily we found some rebuildable cores at the local auto salvage yard, but they cost us another $25 each, so we ended up with about a $75 investment in replacing the broken halfshaft.
