2002 chevy trailblazer: right front..front axle..diagram..a gm garage

Resolved Question:

I am by no means a mechanic of any kind so I will try my best to describe my problem. I have a 2002 chevy trailblazer, the right front axle broke and also damaged the part its connected to( i will a link i found to a site that has a diagram of that part) now i bought a new axle but the other I was told at a gm garage was on back order and so right now my truck does not have a right front axle in place until i get that part. my neighbor is a mechanic and he told me the part was on backorder. my questions are, 1. what is the name of that part? 2. can i drive my truck without that axle or will i cause more damage?

Hello & Welcome,

 

Since I cannot see exactly you will need to tell me what the part name is.Ask who ever is working on it.

No,do not try yo drive with an axle out.

All Right ,very good picture.Just from looking at the parts i am guessing that you the intermediate shaft housing & maybe a clutch sleeve.

If these parts are on back order ,I suggest (the only thing to do besides wait) is go to a salvage yard & purchase a front axle assembly.That is most likely the way they will want to sell it.
