    Yeah, after researching it everyone else seems to break the inners. I wasn't beating on it too hard so I'm suspecting the nut was loose. Thanks for the offer, but yeah these HE axles came up quick and were over half off what they cost new. Hopefully they are still in good shape..

    The axle nuts are to be used only once and discarded, so you should use new axle nuts. These are GM part number 10257766 and are available from many GM part internet suppliers.

    Side note: you don't have to disconnect the upper ball joint from the hub.
