When I was cutting out a front sway bar link with a grinding wheel on my 2000 Camry, nicked the axle. Dumb. Hasty. I see replacing the axle eventually. But how soon? Should I be worried to drive? Thoughts?

If it's just nick I would shoot it with paint and forget about it. If you really nailed it (more than a few mm) then you should replace it as it will create a stress point and it could snap under high acceleration.

Nice to know I am in good company as I nicked the passenger axle. I think my CV axle is so worn anyway that it makes sense to replace it now and not worry about the nick
