      GSP brand driveshaft for Civic- came without ABS ring

      Today I got delivery of new GSP driveshafts and they were not having ABS ring on them. Vendor told me that they come without it for civic and I have to remove ring from old axle and install on this.

      2 questions on this:
      - is this true that aftermarket driveshaft come without ABS ring? Or I have been duped?
      - if yes how difficult it is to remove ring from old driveshaft? Does it need special tool for removal and installation?

      You have to order one for cars with ABS. Ask the shop to get the correct one for you. The old ring can be removed on some models. It cannot be removed in my car. You have to use a lot of heat both while removing and fitting. I mean the ring must be red hot. On some driveshafts, the ring is made of sheet metal and almost impossible to remove without damaging.
      You are already in some trouble as you will have to dismantle the CV joint to get the ring in and assemble again. You will need some moly grease and a new metal clamp. The old clamp is crimped on and cant be reused. A new driveshaft should be a bolt-on without modification. If someone came to me with a job like that I will just send him away.
      Send it back to the shop.
