    Axle Rebuild?

    I bought the kit in this link and works well for me with a Dewalt 20v 1/2” impact. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00061SGZO?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

    Axle Rebuild?

    Check ball joints for sloppy play or stuck in place. If the need to be changed then you have to pull axles, usually Axle U Joints need repair and at that point new axles seals... for rear, axle seals and maybe one piece conversion

    The kit includes a light oil as last step, doubt paint would stick unless you skipped oil step and put clear coat
