    actually when the bolts stretch all kinds of bad things happen
    brake shutter
    destroys the bearings
    tears up huds

    Didnt leave me with that warm fuzzy feeling.

    Super easy install, only confusing issue is what to torque the axle nuts to.
    I have read a very wide rage of torque values, but ended up going with 250 ft/lbs for a couple of reasons:

    1) a reputable Noble shop said that is what they use
    2) that is all my torque wrench would go to.

    gafernandez, if you have a different recommendation, please let us know.

    Here is a before and after picture
    Stock bolts belong in scaffolding. No matter how much you torque them, they stretch. Brake vibrations is the one of the first signs of this and non necessarily indicates warped rotors. I have one of the first sets of axles Willy made and could not be happier.
    Why are those called track axles? Is beyond me. Scaffolding bolts stretch on the street.

    Super easy. If you can jack up a car and take the wheel off you should be able to change the mini axle in one and a half beverage time.

    I need to look at this but sounds super simple and should not be a problem. Is there any benefit to changing bearings at same time, sounds like they are not part of disassembly?

    Bearings are a major job but would check them

    Any one need track axles have three sets.

    For the guys that think i do not track my car i do not need them you are wrong these axles were developed for the track but all Nobles / Rossions need them street or track

    A little disappointed to discover the front axles of my Rossion are just two bolts.
    Hopefully there's a set left.
