Ordered an axle on rock auto and double checked it was for a manual. For some reason it has an ABS ring or speed sensor ring on it and it hits the knuckle. Should it not be hitting or did rock auto just send me the wrong part? Is there a way to take it off or is the axle completely wrong? Of course no parts stores have them and i don't want to have to wait until tuesday to get one. Its an 85 4 speed and 84 knuckle.

It looks like after some more searching the 84 is the only year that can't fit this ring and I should have ordered one for an 84 not an 85

Just take a brass drift and hammer and knock the ABS ring off. It is just press fit to the CV housing.

Didnt know that Fieroguru. I ran into an issue on my 86 GT so I just ground down the ring until it fit.

found a post about someone doing that a long time ago but the brass peice has a lip so it can't slide off. Used an angle grinder and chisel. Pretty soft metal. Thanks for the replies

One of our club members received one with the ABS ring and it wouldn't fit his 86SE. He returned it to the parts dealer for the correct axel without the ring.
