Question about 2010 Toyota Corolla 1.8
How do I repair this. Could axles be bent?
From the force that is required to bend a sway bar there is damage to the body under carriage and panels. To tear the boot you may be lucky in that the rubber was touched with out hitting the axle. make sure that the wheel bearings are good and properly adjusted then jack up under the suspension and turn the wheel and measure any run out by placing something near the axle that is solidly attached to the floor. It the axle is bent you will see it touch and miss and touch again in the same place.

have you undone the main hub bolt, if yes, there could be two different items holding the cv joint on, one is a small circlip in the joint end, or the other is just like an expanding metal ring again only small. what i had to do to change my one was take the driveshaft out (easier to see whats there) then gently (rubber hammer) hit the CV joint it should then fall off to allow you to change the CV joint. I spent over an hour trying to get the metal ring off, then after taking driveshaft off it was changed and back on in ten mins. Or you can go to a motor factors or similar and get a boot puller, my opinion hammer works better lol

1. Jack up and support car on jack stand. Make sure to chock wheels and or lock the parking brake on.
2. Remove wheel
3. Remove cotter key, castle lock and nut at center of rotor that attaches the axle. - If you lack and impact gun to remove this - it is easier to loosen this nut with all of the wheels on the ground.
4. Remove outer tie rod from spindle, Tap out with hammer. Should not require much force.
5. Remove the single bolt from the lower ball joint and separate from spindle.
6. Pull axle out of spindle and remove from transmission. This may require you to drive this out with a hammer and punch ( I use a brass punch), make sure not to damage threads if you intend to reuse the axle.
To install reverse the procedure. Make sure to replace any cotter key removed with new ones during install.
Torque specs you need are
Ball Joint to Spindle = 91 ftlbs
Tie rod to spindle = 36 ftlbs
Drive axle hub nut = 166 ftlbs

I would definitely stay with tire balancing first. So much less expensive. Axle trouble is usually accompanied by noise which comes and goes with turning the wheel or braking.

If you bought new drive axles, they may not have given you the right ones (too short) - they did this to me with my 93 Subi - (I own a 93 Toyota Corolla DX).
Make sure that you are pushing the drive axle in as far as it will go into the tranny - and when putting the other end in the hub assembly - make sure it is lining up (there should be grooves on the axle that MUST lign up with the grooves on the inner portion of the hub assembly.
After pushing the drive axle into the driveline you should not be able to pull it out by hand at all (without effort).
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.
3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.
