    Same problem here! Started at about 98,000 miles. Now at 101,000 and getting worse. I have heard of durrability issues with the factory part. Looks like the Torque King #TK40444 is a good replacement at about $ 200.00 / pair.

    Same thing here. At 98,000 miles dealer told me the same thing. I am now at 101,000 and they are getting worse. Did you get any help from the dealer or Dodge on your? I hear that the OEM parts had durability issues, obliviously as we have seen. I am told that the Torque King #TK40444 at about $ 200.00 / pair are a great replacement.

    Thank you.

How much do just the cvc joints cost

The average cv axle nowadays is around $50 in the aftermarket world and around an hour in labor to replace. If you buy just the joint then someone has to rebuild your current axle with the newly purchased joint and is going to charge you labor to rebuild on top of removing and installing which will cost you more then just replacing the cv axle assembly. Its cheaper in most cases nowadays to just replace the the cv axle assembly.

Replace axle but not cv joints

"What we have here is a failure to communicate". The axle comes with CV joints on the end. You will be buying the rebuilt assembly. Both axle and CV joints will refer to the same part in a front wheel drive application.

Universal joint

On a 2004 Intrepid it does not have Universal Joints, you will have Constant Velocity Joints. If you have one that is rough and noisy it will either need to be rebuilt or replaced. It is usually cheaper to replace the whole half shaft assembly that is it to rebuild one CV joint, this is also much easier as the whole axle is fully assembled. You just have to pop out your worn out pieces and install new axle.

How do you change a cv joint on a 1992 dodge caravan? The right cv joint is out. Do we need to replace the right axel or can we just change the cv joint?

You need to replace the whole right side axle shaft. Take the ball-joint loose and the axle nut. Pull the shaft from the hub assembly and then pull it from the transmission

Changing cvc joints 1997 accord

replace the entire CV axles. Support vehicle with jackstands by frame. Remove front wheels. Remove axle nuts. Remove lower balljoint nut. Separate balljoint from nuckle by banging hard with ball peen hammer on knuckle on spindle assy. Remove outer tie-rod nut. Separate tie-rod from steering nuckle by bangin on nuckle with ball-peen hammer. Use long pry bar to hold lower control arm down while simultaneously pulling hub/spindle assembly away from vehicle and pushing axle through hub toward transaxle. Go under vehicle and pry inner cv joint away from transaxle while holding axle assembly.
Install new CV axle in reverse of the disassembly.

How do i remove the front left axle?

to remove your front axles also known as cv axles you have to pull your brake caliper and rotor off. Then you have to break your hub assembly nut that holds the cv axle tight to the hub assembly. Then you have to bust loose your upper and lower ball joints. After then its 4 or 6 bolts where your cv axle attachs to your front differental.

CV Joint Axle Replacement - How to Repair or Replace

Over time the rubber boots of the CV joints can become cracked, torn, or otherwise compromised. Once moisture and dirt get into a CV joint and grease makes its way out, the CV joints days are numbered. Signs of impending failures are a click-click-clicking or metallic crackling noise while turning and accelerating or a clunking upon deceleration. While one can repack, reboot, and rebuild CV axles, it makes more sense for the average do-it-yourselfer to procure replacement units and swap out the old axles. If a boot is torn or missing, it is possible to save the joint if caught early enough, but usually the damage has already been done. Replacing or servicing the entire CV joint axle assembly may be the smarter move since replacing a boot may involve removing an axle, which may also involve removing half or all of the vehicle's brakes and suspension.
