Ok. Would it still be my CV if the boot is still fully intact?

Re: 90 Prelude Si FL knocking sound when turning

I'm in a 90 Si and my front left front at low speeds sounds like it has a golf ball rattling around. I've got the same problem it's definitely the CV joint. I know I should replace mine too but I've never done it >_< I've heard it's not hard to do but I'm a little intimidated. And isn't it smart to replace both sides at the same time?

Re: 90 Prelude Si FL knocking sound when turning

they are not like brakes. you can replace them as they fail. the only logic behind replacing them both is that odds are the other side isnt far behind. its true, both times ive replaced an axle ive had to replace the other one within 6 months

Ok. The passanger one was replaced before i bought it. He had it done back in Jan. or Feb. the nice thing is they are not that much and they are not that hard ether. Thanks for all the input.

Re: 90 Prelude Si FL knocking sound when turning

Don't buy replacement axles from NAPA. I've gone through three driver side and two passenger side axles in the last three years. I don't know who rebuilds them for NAPA but they are crap. I wouldn't keep getting them there but they are still under warranty when they fail. I've gotten pretty quick are replacing them. I can now do one in under 30 minutes.

Re: 90 Prelude Si FL knocking sound when turning

I usually break the axle nut first before loosening the lug nuts and jacking it up. My problem was that you can't pull it out of the upper fork cause the diameter of the cv boot is bigger than the opening of the upper fork. So I had to take it apart just to get it in and out then put it back together to re-crimp the clamp for the boot. A show of hands for everyone else that had to do that. Be honest please.

Lol, I've done that a couple of times. Now it's not necessary because I have replaced my front lower control arms and the bolts aren't seized to the bushings anymore. Now I can just remove the forks.
