First, call around for replacement boot prices, and compare that to replacement axle prices (rebuilts are available). Usually, it is only a few dollars more for a new or rebuilt axle assembly then for a new boot. The operation for replacement is the same for either, so I would go with the axle. Then, find a friend with automotive lift equipment. It is much more difficult to replace when on jackstands than when on an actual lift. Make sure you have the manual with you. Or, just pay someone the labor$; it may be worth it!

Was told i need front cv compl assy both sides. is there a safety issue if it is not done immediately?


If the rubber boots have **** open, then the grease that is provided to the cv joint will eventually wash out and the unit will self destruct leaving the vehicle immobile. You should have them replaced to avoid an inconvenient breakdown.

What's involved in changing out cv joints on a 96 grand cherokee?


the joint is fairly easy to change. the hardest part is getting the hub assembly off. you will need a36mm sokcet for the hub nut.i had to use an 18" breaker bar to remove it.

Where can I find the rubber seals for the ball joints that houses the cv joints on the front axle for a nissan safari ldv '89 model


If you are refering to those corrugated rubber boots, it is highly recommended to replace those CV shafts as the dirt and moisture contamination is not a good thing in CV joints. Dirt and moisture are the leading causes of CV shaft failures. You can by the boots as a repair boot and those wrap around the CV shaft/joint area and bolt together. If you are talking about the little rubber boots on the ball jonts themselves at the end of a steering link, those boots are not sold individually. They only come with new Ball joint assemblies.

I have a 91 Subaru loyale 4dr sedan. 1.8Engine. I am told that the right CV joint and boot needs replaced. I am having a hard time finding the part and any repair info on it to see if I can do this...


If you get a clicking noise then the joint in the axle is damaged and will require replacement of the axle. The benefit is ease of replacement and they come with new c.v. boots on the inner and outer joint. Replacing the boot and repacking the joint in grease will not eliminate the noise.

How often to replace cv boots/cv joints/axle?


If something off the road tore the boot, yes but if it has not been tore long and you don't hear any clicking noises around corners, you can just replace the boot.

Cv boots need repair work & bearings need grease packing.


I would strongly suggest you replace the whole cv joint. If it is clicking then the joint is worn out. Driving it with no grease will cause the wear to increase and become a hazard. The joint could break and you will be out alot more than just replacing the joints now.

97 toyota celica outer cv boot replacement passenger side


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

94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?


on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).
