Tip & How-To about 2000 Nissan Maxima
If you hear noise coming from your front wheels when you drive at certain speed, getting worse when you pick up speed. Or you feel your sterring wheel moves or jerks lfet and right everytime you go over small speed pellets on the highway or over small wavy bumpy roads or over small bumps in the road. then it's time to change out both your Right & Left CV Axles as well as your Wheel Bearings! Both of these have to be done in conjuntion with one another.If your Axles give out or your wheel bearings give out (which ever comes first) your vehicle will immediately come to a complete stop!! If you have to money to do these fixes, which are pretty much inexpensive to find, if you know where to shop for parts and you can find a shop that does not charge a lot for labor.In my case I am going to change the majority of other parts as well, not only both CV Axles but also: 4 new wheel hubs, 4 new (heavy duty wheel bearings-made in Japan), 4 new(thick) brake rotors and 4 new 50/50 mix heavy duty-brake pads(will offer me no squeaks and no brake residue to rims-also from Japan).Why Japan, well, just better parts for my application-wheel bearings can wear out quick if your not buying from a reputable company that uses only the best top-quality hard steel/iron materials with state of the art procedures that bring forth a product with long durability and life.You can buy USA made parts, but in certain applications it's better to buy Japanese parts depending on your vehicle type.Do your homework and decide for yourself which part is most important to your apllication and it's durability factor.Since the wheel bearing is of utmost importance for my application/type of vehicle,i'm buying the best...Happy restoration....
