Sounds like you bent your axle. The smallest bend will put everything off balance. If the axle's not bent, I would say the cv joint is bad. Dam acuras and their ball joints

SOURCE: front ball joint and drive axle fell out on 2000 acura TL

I do not know if there is a recall, you can call Honda and they will tell you. The repair will be a little expensive, rough cost, I don't know, is the drive shaft bent? are the control arms bent? disc damaged? brake lines? The ball joint was probably the failure component that caused this, I would say that the car was not well maintained before she purchased it. To minimize your repair cost I would consult a salvage yard, if needed for the control arms, the rest of the parts you may need should be readily availiable at your local parts store and should be replaced new or reconditioned.

Did you contact the seller? was it a dealer? if a dealer he should help with repairs.

Ball joints just dont "fall off". Ball joints should be easily available. I'm sure the dealer can get any part you need. You may need other pieces. Have a RELIABLE shop check it over, your life is at risk, dont try cheap fixes.

How to replace a CV joint 2000 Cavalier Drivers side


Buy the right CV axle. Raise right front of vehicle. Remove wheel. use a lugnut and washers to secure brake rotor so that it is not flopping and trapping rust behind. Remove axle nut. Loosen nuts from outer tie rod end stud and lower ball joint stud almost all the way off, but do not remove them completely. Seperate the studs from knuckles by striking each knuckle with a ball peen hammer. After the tie rod and lower ball joint are seperated from the spindle knuckles, pry down on lower control arm and push end of axle through hub toward transaxle until hub and spindle assembly is free from axle/CV joint. Place drain pan under transmission. Carefully place pry bar between innner CV joint and transmission and pop axle assembly loose. Install new axle in reverse of the dissassembly.

If there is no other damage aside from the outer CV joint being out.

1. Jack car up and support on jack stand on the affected side.
2. Remove wheel
3. Remove center hub nut

11. Pry lower control arm down to allow the ball joint to be reassembled. Slip ball joint shaft back into control arm.
12. Reinstall bolt and nut
13. Install hub nut

2002 Honda Civic LX Front Lower Ball Joint Removal/Install.


I had a question i bought a used control arm for a 2001 honda civic compared it to the original and everything was the same except the part where the ball joint goes into is a few mm thicker on the control arm. Beedless to say i got it in but i had to over tighten to get the nut in all the way. I thought this would stop the rattling sound when i hit a pothole bit its still doing it and i fear the control arm is the incorrect one what other honda has the same control arm as the civic?
