1989 Subaru GL Wagon, told I need both axels replaced and ball joints as well as brakes replaced, for $500.00. Is that too much?


That whole deals sounds fishy. Brake job should be about $100 depending on parts. That part about needing to replace axle to replace ball joints doesn't sound right. I've been a diesel mechanic for 30 yrs and bought, drove and fixed used cars a bunch. Not that specific one, but plenty of them. Get another opinion.

I have a 2006 dodge Dakota sly and the front drive axle is longing and grinding what could be the problem


Depending on which side, it could be a wheel hub assembly or drive axel/CV joint/UJoint worn. If from the center of the vehicle it may be an internal differential problem

Axel for 2002 kia rio


You should make the front end repairs and then get new tires. An alignment won't help until you replace the bad parts.

2003 dodge ram 2500 diesel. I have problem with the front axel u joint, it sound like it lose, and the shaft to the 4x4 sound like it lose too. do you think that i need to change the 4x4 oil or the shaft...


Hello Luis.... It sounds like the u joint itself is worn out and needs to be changed. Here is how to check it out:
Things You'll Need:
  • WHEEL BLOCKS
  • LEVEL GROUND
  • THERMAL TEMP GUN
  • GLOVES
  1. PARK VEHICLE ON LEVEL GROUND
  2. BLOCK WHEELS
  3. AFTER WHEELS ARE BLOCKED! (MAKE SURE WHEELS ARE BLOCKED SO VEHICLE WILL NOT ROLL) PLACE VEHICLE IN NEUTRAL. "WITH ENGINE OFF!!!!!" NOW GET UNDER VEHICLE TO ACCESS DRIVELINE.
  4. NOW THE PRESSURE IS OFF U JOINT BECAUSE THE VEHICLE IS IN A NEUTRAL STATE!!! GRAB THE DRIVELINE AT THE FRONT AND REAR JOINT. SEE IF YOU CAN GET IT TO MOVE UP AND DOWN. IF IT HAS MOVEMENT IT IS BAD! IF NO MOVEMENT, MAKE SURE TO LOOK AT THE UJOINT IT'S SELF TO SEE IF IT SHOWS SIGNS OF DAMAGE.
    IF YOU STILL CAN NOT LOCATE IT? STEP FIVE IS THE FASTEST WAY TO MOST LIKELY FIND THE BAD UJOINT! BECAUSE IT IS NOT BROKE OR MOVING ALL OVER, DOES NOT MEAN IT IS NOT BAD! U JOINTS HAVE TO HAVE GREASE! WHEN THEY BECOME DRY AND STILL FEEL TIGHT! READ ON TO FIND OUT A PRETTY FAST WAY TO FIND IT!
  5. YOU ARE GOING TO REPEAT STEP ONE AND TWO AGAIN, BUT FIRST "WITH VEHICLE COLD", DRIVE A SHORT DISTANCE AT NORMAL SPEED. NO LESS THAN 5 BLOCKS AND NO MORE THAN A MILE. STOP VEHICLE AND REPEAT STEPS ONE AND TWO AT THIS TIME! ONE MORE STEP TO GO!!!
  6. AFTER BLOCKING WHEELS AND PLACING VEHICLE IN NEUTRAL, "WITH ENGINE OFF!!!", CLIMB UNDER VEHICLE ,TAKE A THERMAL TEMP GUN AND POINT IT AT THE UJOINT IT'S SELF. COMPARE THE FRONT UJOINT TO THE BACK UJOINT! THEY SHOULD BE REAL CLOSE TO THE SAME TEMP, IF ONE IS HIGHER IN TEMP BY MORE THAN 8 DEGREES, IT IS MOST LIKELY THE BAD ONE. HAVE IT REPLACED BY A QUALIFIED AUTOMOTIVE TECHNICIAN.

Here is a short video that shows what to look for http://www.ehow.com/video_2328172_inspect-joints.html

Need to replace front left cv axel


Best approach is to acquire a repair manual for that vehicle. Pep Boys or similar will likely have one..

Replaced both front axels and jack shaft and now the car wobbles


Sounds like one of the new CV shafts has a bad inner joint. It isn't the transmission. Is this a 4 cylinder or V6?

Axel Change?


I had the same issue and had it fixed for free based on my warranty. I don't remember the name of the part, but it wasn't the axel. From what I was told, it was a common problem, but not common enough to issue a recall. I recommend talking to a few different Saturn retailers. Good luck.
