Track rod end and lower track control arm ,remove caliper as weel in case you stretch the brake hose ,nice messy job full of black grease that takes a week to get out of your fingers ,leave nut on ball joints well about two turns on then wack on side with a 1 kg hammer ,if you use a splitter it will destroy teh rubber covers allowing dirt into ball joints

Front driver side cv joint?


could be top/bottom ball joint easy to check ,jack up so wheel off ground hold wheel at 12 o'clock and 6o'clock (the position not the time) and wobble back and forwards then do the same but holding at 3 an 9 if notice movement further investigation needed,while you wobble wheel get someone too look at top/ bottom ball joints ,track rod end if they dont appear to be moving then more than likely bearing this is best done with vehicle on a lift but should be able to carry out on the ground the cv joint could also be responsible but would need a garage to determine as a bit more complex

That usually is a worn CV joint. Go to a smooth surface like a parking lot, wind the windows down, and turn slow circles on full lock. If you hear that noise, it is probably the CV joints and not ball joint noise, since you are not going over bumps.
Also look at the CV rubber boots (2 each side) to find any splits in them. Those let grease out and dirt in, and rapidly end the life of a CV joint.

The individual joints can be replaced, but it isn't worth it. If worn out, get a complete re-manufactured front axle each side.

How do you replace cv joints?


With the car on axle stands and front wheels off. Split the ball joint and turn the steering to one side. Loosen the threads on the CV joints and mark how many threads the old ones were at. Fit new CV joint and press/lever the ball joint back on. Same for the other side. You'll need he alignment doing afterwards, even if you think you got the threads spot on.

If you don't your tires will suffer. The job sounds easy but sometimes splitting ball joints can be a pain. Good luck, set aside a full day.

Vote for me if this helped you.

How to replace a CV joint 2000 Cavalier Drivers side


Buy the right CV axle. Raise right front of vehicle. Remove wheel. use a lugnut and washers to secure brake rotor so that it is not flopping and trapping rust behind. Remove axle nut. Loosen nuts from outer tie rod end stud and lower ball joint stud almost all the way off, but do not remove them completely. Seperate the studs from knuckles by striking each knuckle with a ball peen hammer. After the tie rod and lower ball joint are seperated from the spindle knuckles, pry down on lower control arm and push end of axle through hub toward transaxle until hub and spindle assembly is free from axle/CV joint. Place drain pan under transmission. Carefully place pry bar between innner CV joint and transmission and pop axle assembly loose. Install new axle in reverse of the dissassembly.

CV joint questions


well now,,,il tell you a storie,,,better sit down?
the cv joints are the joints in a drive train that for use of a better word "bend the drive shaft" so it dont brake when you turn a corner,,,ie:parking! inside the cv joint is held on the drive shaft be some splines in the drive shaft and a spring clip holds it all together there is an "inner bell" it has normaly 5 slots in it that have big "ball bearings" in them that slid around up and down these slots on the out side of the cv joint is the outer "bell" this also has slots that the ball bearings fit into so the drive trough the cv is compleat,,,when you turn the wheels the cv joints slids round on these ball bearings twisting round but the drive from the engine is still transmited to the road wheeles trough the cv
when this cv joint starts to were out the ball bearings are pitted and not ball shaped any more and the slots they run in are not smooth that to gets pitted what happens is the cv starts to "crack" under load,,,and vibrate when turning or being driven you drive down the road at 50 mph and the car feels like its driving over stones in the road its vidrating off the cv joint then when you turn the wheel on full lock to pull away you here a very big cracking or clicking sound, like,,,,,click click click, and the more power you put on the more they click very soon people start turning around and look at you? oh yes they here it to!
the vibration that comes off the cv will reck the transmission becouse of the wipping of the drive shafts,,,, to test your cv joints to see if there good or bad one's put the car on full lock and pull away,, if there is a cracking sound or a klicking sound there shot away and you need new ones fitted
now then,,,storie over,,, its time for sleepy sleeps
