Replacing your axle assemblies and CV joints is an advanced job.
Specialized tools such as tie-rod end pullers, ball joint removers and vehicle-specific sockets may be required. Leave one side assembled while you work on the other so you can remember how things go back together.
A missing or damaged CV joint boot often means that a replacement axle shaft is in order. Replacing the entire assembly makes more sense than just servicing a CV joint boot.
Advance Auto Parts carries axle assemblies that meet or exceed the requirements of original equipment. Ask your Advance Auto Parts Team member at the quality auto parts store nearest you about the tools required for your vehicle.
It’s important that you replace your worn axle shafts. Here’s why:
Front-wheel drive vehicles get their power to the wheels by way of drive axle assemblies. At either end of these assemblies is what is known as a constant velocity joint. Rubber boots that cover the joints keep contaminants out and lubricant in.
If the boots fail, so can the axle shaft. Click-click-clicking sounds while turning are a sure sign of impending axle failure.
Don’t wait until it's too late. Advance Auto Parts is here to help with high quality auto parts and knowledgeable service.
