2000 Dodge Durango: Loud popping sound near front wheels when braking, or going over a bump, turning into or backing out of driveways.


That sounds like the ball joints. The midsized Dodge is notorious for bad ball joints because the factory used substandard parts. I would not wait to have it repaired. There are documented cases of the Dodges losing the front wheels because of ball joint failure. You need to have them repaired asap. The lower ball joints are usually the noisy ones. If you can afford it, have all four fixed at the same time, But be sure to take care of the lowers right away. Hope this has been of some help.

Unable to remove strut with lower arm in place and driveshaft connected to hub.Ifollowed Haynes Golf manual procedure but found space too tight to remove strut even with spring compressed.Eventually...


The swaybar is still giving you tension. The link has to be disconnected to the control arm. You need to disconnect the balljoint for the tie rod. Before removing the lower ball joint from the hub assembly, mark with a punch for reference when putting it back. There is no need to remove the center nut for CV joint unless it is the original strut which is longer when in static position. Note; DO NOT roll vehicle on the ground without a CV joint connected to the hub, wheel bearing will be crushed from vehicle weight.

You can use a 1/4" extension end placed on the slot to spread the strut carrier wide enough to release the strut from the carrier.

Disconnect the front sway bar linkage from the control arm. Disconnect the steering ball joint and lower control arm ball joint then and only then you will have elbow room work around once you have removed the axle nut from the CV joint. Sorry no short cut for this procedure, some even disconnect the control arm from the car to persuade the removal.

What the main purpose of fitting a steering rack gaiter or boot would be to


Prevent road dirt and water getting into the seals and bearings

There is normally a universal joint in there which needs to be lubricated

Once the gaiter has split the lubricant is diluted by water, grit gets into the joint and they wear out quicker

"Simples" as the Meerkat would put it

How do I change the CV joints on a 1.8TD Ford Escort P reg


Hi mate

With the driveshaft removed from the vehicle.

Undo the the retaining straps on the CV boot.

Pull the CV boot up the driveshaft a little way, enough so you can clean all the old grease away.

Now look into the CV joint an locate the circlip that locks the CV to the driveshaft.

Now put the driveshaft into a vice with the CV joint facing downwards.

Now open the circlip and at the same time strike the CV joint. You can do this with a ballpin hammer if you are scrapping the CV joint. You can get a helper to stike the CV joint with a hammer while you keep the circlip open.

This will release the CV joint form the drive shaft.

Now clean the driveshaft of any old grease and fit a new CV boot if needed.

Now reverse the driveshift in the vice and fit the new CV joint. It will tap on with no trouble but do not damage it. Test it is on by trying to pull it off with your hands.

Now fill it with new grease.

Fit the CV boot to the CV joint and secure it to the CV joint.

Now it is ready to refit to your vehicle.

I trust this solves the problem for you.
