2007 kia sorento with 150K just had rear end go out. Is it rebuildable? Are parts available?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sorento yourself? What have you tried so far?

Probably not....will have to take it somewhere....not sure where to take it so the work is done to factory spec.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am in Arlington, TX if it helps to have location info.

Hello, and thank you for your question. I am Brandon - Kia tech.

Yes, it is rebuildable. What the shop would do is replace all the bad parts out and replace it with new parts. This is the expensive way to due to time consumption. If the shop replace the rear-end with the an used one unit the job would be much cheaper and faster.
