The ball joints arent hard to do at all all you have to do is take the front tires off and you will see the ball joints as soon as you do this. then there is a nut on the bottom of the ball joint, remove it. then where the ball joint assembly connects to the tie rod mark where the end of the nut is with a sharpie. then loosen the compression nut that holds the ball joint then use a large wrench to loosen the ball joint assembly. then take off the old ball joint and replace it wit the new one lining up the backside of the compression nut with the mark you made with the marker then tighten. then put the bolt on the bottom of the ball joint assembly back in to the hole where you removed it then tighten snugly and put your tire back on and you are finished and then do the same on the other side

That usually is a worn CV joint. Go to a smooth surface like a parking lot, wind the windows down, and turn slow circles on full lock. If you hear that noise, it is probably the CV joints and not ball joint noise, since you are not going over bumps.
Also look at the CV rubber boots (2 each side) to find any splits in them. Those let grease out and dirt in, and rapidly end the life of a CV joint.

The individual joints can be replaced, but it isn't worth it. If worn out, get a complete re-manufactured front axle each side.

How do you replace cv joints?


With the car on axle stands and front wheels off. Split the ball joint and turn the steering to one side. Loosen the threads on the CV joints and mark how many threads the old ones were at. Fit new CV joint and press/lever the ball joint back on. Same for the other side. You'll need he alignment doing afterwards, even if you think you got the threads spot on.

If you don't your tires will suffer. The job sounds easy but sometimes splitting ball joints can be a pain. Good luck, set aside a full day.

CV joint questions


well now,,,il tell you a storie,,,better sit down?
the cv joints are the joints in a drive train that for use of a better word "bend the drive shaft" so it dont brake when you turn a corner,,,ie:parking! inside the cv joint is held on the drive shaft be some splines in the drive shaft and a spring clip holds it all together there is an "inner bell" it has normaly 5 slots in it that have big "ball bearings" in them that slid around up and down these slots on the out side of the cv joint is the outer "bell" this also has slots that the ball bearings fit into so the drive trough the cv is compleat,,,when you turn the wheels the cv joints slids round on these ball bearings twisting round but the drive from the engine is still transmited to the road wheeles trough the cv
when this cv joint starts to were out the ball bearings are pitted and not ball shaped any more and the slots they run in are not smooth that to gets pitted what happens is the cv starts to "crack" under load,,,and vibrate when turning or being driven you drive down the road at 50 mph and the car feels like its driving over stones in the road its vidrating off the cv joint then when you turn the wheel on full lock to pull away you here a very big cracking or clicking sound, like,,,,,click click click, and the more power you put on the more they click very soon people start turning around and look at you? oh yes they here it to!
the vibration that comes off the cv will reck the transmission becouse of the wipping of the drive shafts,,,, to test your cv joints to see if there good or bad one's put the car on full lock and pull away,, if there is a cracking sound or a klicking sound there shot away and you need new ones fitted
now then,,,storie over,,, its time for sleepy sleeps

Knocking sound when i turn, mostly turning to the right, changed driveshaft and no joy, any ideas?


Sound like you might need balls joints, control arms..etc.. or the CV joint is bad. Take into a Service center Not a dealership. They only rip you off.. And ask for the front end to be checked for bad ball joints etc..And ask about the CV joints.. The boots around the CV joints that keeps the water and dirt out and also hold the grease can be cracked and will let the grease out and will let the dirt and water in and cause the joint to pop and go bad...Hope this helps

Where can I find the rubber seals for the ball joints that houses the cv joints on the front axle for a nissan safari ldv '89 model


If you are refering to those corrugated rubber boots, it is highly recommended to replace those CV shafts as the dirt and moisture contamination is not a good thing in CV joints. Dirt and moisture are the leading causes of CV shaft failures. You can by the boots as a repair boot and those wrap around the CV shaft/joint area and bolt together. If you are talking about the little rubber boots on the ball jonts themselves at the end of a steering link, those boots are not sold individually. They only come with new Ball joint assemblies.

Cv joint replacement 1998 isuzu trooper 4x4


This is a simple job that is why it is not very detailed in your book. Nothing special. Do one side at a time so you have a reference to how to reassemble it. Remove your tire , brake calipers be sure not to stress the rubber brake lines or open the brake lines to air. Remove both upper and lower ball joints. When taking out the ball joints remove the cotter pin and bolt and beat the **** out of the joint for it to release. Then the C/V axles will come right out with a bit out encouragement. You will need a few tools wrenches pry bar hammer. I would buy a Chilton's or a Haynes repair manual for torque specs for reassembly. Good luck and take your time. And unless the axles are making noise you can just replace the rubber boots. Which is alot cheaper.

Took my car to mechanic because car was knocking ang cv boot was ripped with no ball showing. He says its not a cv joint problem but that my ball joints need replacing. Is this possible even though I...


hi there,
yes it is possible that the ball joint could be making that noise,a cv joint although does not always make a noise just becuse the boot is split.
A cv joint generaly makes a clicking sound on turns,i would maybe get a second opinion if that would make you happy.
I hope that sheds some light on the subject for you.

CV joint replacement


Generally no tool is required. If you use a "pickle fork" you will risk damaging the dust boot.

Have you tried whacking the spindle right near where the ball joint stud comes through? This will take a few good shots to break it loose.

Be careful not to hit the threads!
