Product was promptly shipped and fit vehicle perfectly. It came with a axle socket free which would have cost x amount of dollars making installation easy and quick. After installation my 4 wheel drive both High and Low worked perfectly with no more grinding or jerking. Very pleased with quality and shipping of my order. Thank You.

socket kit was not very good because it was damaging the nut, so I found a different socket that worked better with my impact drill.
