Rebuild axles or don't let the air in?

We haven't had axle problems

Your current situation likely has something to do with your previous decision to leave it be ;)

Saying that.

IRS RWD axles are not put though the range of motion of a FWD thus not generating much heat or wear, you would likely be fine either by building or ignoring, we choose to ignore 25 yr old stuff that never gives grief, yes even the boots are cracked and old, if one leaks it was because of something we did, it always finishes the race, only found during post race refresh where another "free" used axle is installed rather then chasing a oddball $$ boot kit.

I ran 10+ stage rally events on the axles that are in the 240, and they are the "weak" 6 bolt ones that all the drifters are afraid of.  The car has been airborne more times than I can remember, and has now survived 3, 16 hour endurance events.  Unless a boot rips, I'm not touching them.  (knock on wood)
