Cv joint is no problem but didnt know they had springs ,never seen one with springs in ??hold cv joint upright then place the internal splined piece inside the metal cage then at an angle place this inside the cv cup and then turn it putting the balls in one at a time ,not difficult but with pratice it becomes easier .but never done one with spring loaded balls to be honest but i should imagine that you put a spring in first then the ball push it down and and then turn the ring piece

I'm replacing my lower control arm on my 1994 Subaru SVX, and the ball joint won't fit back into its housing. It seems as though the entire assembly has been pushed away from the control arm its self. I...


Yes the CV joints do have a good bit of travel in and out. You should be able to just it back in as easily as it pulled out. Also, unlock the steering column, it will allow you to move the steering knuckle around if need be to make things line up. Also, if the ens of the ball joint that goes up inside the control arm is strait ,not tapered they are a bugger to get back together, the joint has to be pointed exactly at the right angle to match the hole. If its rusty clean it up with some abrasive paper and lube it with some anti seize or something, this helps thins slide back together, and if you ever have to take it apart again it will be way easier to separate the joint. If you CV joints don't move in and out freely there could be something wrong there or you may have pulled it out of the trans axel and it doesn't want to go back in.

I need to now how.My stirring wheel when ever turning the front end tires makes craking noise.The fluid level is normal. Its only has 76,777 miles.Shocks on front one of the boots leak could that be the...


hi the broken gaiter/boot could be a problem normally these are full of lubricating grease as they have ball bearings in side, this is called a CV joint, or constant velocity joint, when the bearings get dry they make more of a clicking noise more than a cracking noise, but it would be advisable to get the gaiter repaired/replaced, the noise you may be hearing could be a track rod end or a ball joint, when these are worn they tend to move in directions they are not made to do, ie sideways motion, also, the spring caps can also make this noise if one of the springs have come out of their seat and as you turn one way it tries to pop back in but when you turn the other way it pops out again, you could have a friend turn the steering wheel for you to test this, best way to test this would be to just turn the wheel without the engine running so to put as much strain on the front as possible, to test if the ball joint/track rod end has worn, is to jack each side up and pull the bottom of the wheel and push the top in a shaking motion any movement will show where it is coming from track rod end or ball joint...hope this helps

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.

CV replacement


You don't have to pull the hub! No spring compressor needed. Either unhook the steering knuckle from the strut or thre lower ball joint and swing it out away from the car. Remeber to remove the brake calipers and tie rod ends to get more "swing". It takes a little palying with to manuver it out but you can do it.

Took my car to mechanic because car was knocking ang cv boot was ripped with no ball showing. He says its not a cv joint problem but that my ball joints need replacing. Is this possible even though I...


hi there,
yes it is possible that the ball joint could be making that noise,a cv joint although does not always make a noise just becuse the boot is split.
A cv joint generaly makes a clicking sound on turns,i would maybe get a second opinion if that would make you happy.
I hope that sheds some light on the subject for you.
