Default CV Joint/Axle damper weight

Hello,

I'm replacing my CV joint axle on my wifes 2001 Chrysler Town Country LI. The car hasantibrakes and it's FWD. I ordered a replacement axle from rockauto.com and it looks to be almost the exact replacement, however, it does not have a dampler weight attached to it. The axle on the car has one. It seem that this damper weight required... Shouldn't the new come with one attached or do I remove the original damper weight and put it on the newer in the same location?

Thanks

The new part looks exactly like the original except for the damper weight, which now looks permantly attached to original. I wouldn't know about the actual teeth count on the splines until I remove the old part. I'm afraid to see what chrysler/mopar charge for this part...but I'll check

i ment the tone wheel for the ABS it should have a wheel with over sized splines where the speed sensor will read the speed of the wheel u said it had abs right??

I stopped at local part store and looked at another replacement for it and looked identical to the one I already purchased. I asked about the damper weight and they said that you should take the old off and put on new. I also called Chrysler for price on the part ....$350....argh...that's more than 6x what I paid for the online part.

If the part looks exactly the same before I get it off (i.e. tone ring teeth count and can get old damper off) and the splines look same after I get it off...I think I'm going to use the one I got from rockauto.

Hi,

i mean, it dosn´t matter to change the driveaxle w/o the damper weight. I´ve done this in 2005 at my 1996 3.8L Plymouth Grand Voyager. The new axle came w/o damper and now my vehicle runs for about 25.000 mls with no problems. Here is a link to a workshop "how to change a driveaxle".
