My 1998 Toyota Landcruiser Colorado (206000 miles) has an oil leak from the rear dif, I took it to my local garage and they said it is corroded so badly I need a new rear axle. If I can get replacement axle is it worth doing it ? I reckon on approx £1000, the vehicle can't be worth more than £2k, then something else could go wrong. I've had it about 11 years and put 156000 miles on it. I took it to a couple of engineering places and they reckon its too corroded to weld.
What should I do ? Repair, sell for spares or repair (what would it be worth) everything else on the car is sound (at the moment) 2 new batteries and 2 nearly new BFG all terrain tyres. The engine had a new piston/cylinder head/rebuild (can't quite remember without checking) at about 90K.
Any advice gratefully received.
