CV joints

sooo a while back i noticed my cv joints boots ripped and was planning on getting them fixed but i had some expenses i had to take care of before being able to get them fixed. now im noticing alote that as im pulling out of my house in reverse or moving forward i heard some "clacks" as i turn the wheels. whats the cheapest way to get my cv joints in good condition so i dont cause more damage to the car with daily driving. i dont really know what i might have to switch out but if i find them cheap i can just get my mechanic to install them because he dosent charge much. is ebay a good place to start looking? thanks people!

Re: CV joints

I'm on the same boat..... My CV boots are donezo. They haven't started clicking yet. Don't you gotta replace the axel? Not just the CV boot?

i belive if you replace the boot you can hold off replacing the axel for a while. i never replaced the boot so my cv joint axels went even faster. what exactly am i looking for tho guys? any links?

Re: CV joints

Check out RockAuto Auto Parts they are ridiculously cheap for parts. I just ordered new axles for my 5 speed swap and at $45 bucks each with a lifetime warranty they are about $40 cheaper then what AutoZone and Advance Auto quoted me for the same axle. They even come with the axle nut which by itself is like a $10 nut

CARDONE SELECT Part # 664163 New CARDONE Select Constant Velocity Drive Axle W/ or W/O ABS; Base; Front Right - $44.79 $0 Core charge

CARDONE SELECT Part # 664162 New CARDONE Select Constant Velocity Drive Axle W/ or W/O ABS; Base; Front Left - $44.79 $0 Core charge

Re: CV joints

once they start clicking, booting them wont help much. in other words, replace the axles. if you booted them when you first noticed the problem they would have been ok for a while.

Re: CV joints

if you notice a ripped boot, get it fixed. its an easy repair. did mine in around an hour. cost 20 bucks. most cv boot kits will come with the boot,clamps,grease and locking rings. a mechanic will charge you pretty much the same price to either change your boot or the shaft. difference is the 150 bucks for the shaft vs 20 for a boot. once it clicks the joint is done and rebuilding a joint isnt fun so you would replace the shaft. if you get the joint apart and the grease isnt contaminated with all kinds of salt and dirt, boot it back up and you might be good for quite a while. ive never had a cv joint fail with the boot still intact.

Re: CV joints

dont make it complicated. Just buy a new cv axle. really simple to install and you'll love not hearing clicking when you turn. Now I can drive without being embarrassed cuz I just did mine lol

Oh. Either have a ball joint separator or put the front of the car on jack stands and use the jack to raise the knuckle and wedge a ratchet or something above the ball joint and drop it. Just an FYI cuz it took me like 3 hours the first try lol

Re: CV joints

im planning on doing also the 5 speed swap so should i just hold out on buying new cv joints or do i have to buy different ones for the swap? dont want money to go to waste on something ima change in a month or so.
