Question about Cars & Trucks
The best bet is to call around and ask if the auto supply store if they have a sale Orielly's sent me a offer 10 bucks of purchase of 50 bucks or more. I would call around, and if you do a online company, just make sure you check the Better Business website.

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.

The same way you took it off, pull the bolt to seperate the lower control arm from the strut and move the lower arm out the way wit a pry bar on reinstall to make life easyer, also use a hellolot of power lube or wd40 on all bolts n nuts so you dont round any like i did on my first few trying to be a fast guy.

Hello, I as a professional would say the safest thing would be to have it towed. If the joint has not been distroyed to the point of falling apart then you could possible push it by hand if the inboard joint is bad and not the outboard joint next to the wheel. With the outboard broken there is a very strong posibility the if you tried to make a turn even by pushing the joint will just lock up completely and you will not be able to push the vehicle past that point. You also take a chance of causing additional damage to the vehicle if the assembly comes apart completely. The outboard CVC joint is more dangerous than the inboard since the outboard is in a percision location to allow turning. Good Luck, RAC

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.
