The installation is not at all that difficult. it takes about an hour per side for remove/install. you will need a atool for the ball joint it looks like a big fork. unfortunately almost always the rubber boot for the ball joint tears while removing no matter how careful you are. you can buy them for a few dollars at an auto parts store. you will not need an alignment as long as you do not loosen the strut from the wheel rotor assembly. to avoid this just remove the 3 or 4 nuts at the top of the strut mount on the fender.hope this was helpful

How long to replace CV joint outer boot 2001 Sonata V6 please?


The CV-boot has C-clips inside the boot they must be released befor the boot will come apart. It would be very hard to tell you how to do it on this page. I would not recommend doing this if you do not know what you are doing, as this requires dissassembly of the front brake and suspension system. You really need a repair manual on how to fix CV-joints. raise the front end and support with stands, remove wheel, remove axle nut, remove bolt that attaches bottome of strut to control arm remove lower ball joint bolt smack the knuckle where the ball joint is to remove and flip the knuckle out of the way, use pry bar to pop halfshaft out of ******. while installing new one make sure the splines line up and it pops in place installation reverse of removal

How to change cv joints


I would replace the complete axle assembly,
it would be cheaper and come with a warranty.

Instructions
  1. Remove the CV Joint
    • Remove the boot straps from the CV joint using a standard screwdriver or a pair of diagonal cutting pliers.
    • Slide the boot back over the interconnecting shaft.
    • Get Chevrolet Info at InsideLine Free News, Videos, Photos & More!
      Detach the stop ring at the base of the CV joint assembly using a pair of snap ring pliers.

    • Pull the CV joint assembly from the interconnecting shaft to force the snap ring at the top of the shaft through the CV joint assembly.
    • Tilt the inner cage (the cage holding the balls in place inside the housing) in different angles to remove the six balls. Use your thumb or a hammer and a wooden dowel, if necessary.
    • Tilt the inner cage enough to remove it from its housing.
    • Rotate the race inside the cage--the part that holds the balls against the inner cage--and remove the race from the cage.
      Replace the CV Joint
      • Apply a thick coat of grease to the new CV joint race using special high temperature/high pressure grease (see Tips below).
      • Install the race inside the new cage. Then install the cage/race assembly inside the CV joint housing.
      • Tilt the cage at different angles and fit the new balls in place.
      • Slide a new CV joint rubber boot over the interconnecting shaft.
      • Install a new snap and stop ring on the interconnecting shaft.
      • Push the interconnecting shaft through the CV joint assembly to force the snap ring through the assembly.
      • Apply a thick coat of CV joint grease to all moving parts of the assembly.
      • Apply a coat of CV joint grease to the inside of the rubber boot. Then slide the boot over the CV joint assembly.
      • Install the boot straps at each end of the boot, and tighten the straps using a clamp tool or screwdriver, depending on the type of clamp.

Front end bushing and ball joint do you need to change upper and lower bushings at same time and how hard is to them


It's not required to change the upper and the lower at the same time. However it will save you time if you do them both as if one is going out the other will soon.
The actual job is not that difficult but you may need a pickle fork or a ball joint removal tool to disconnect the ball joints from the steering knuckle. You will also need a ball joint press to remove/install the ball joints. You may also need a strut spring compressor. You can rent these at an auto parts store.
Basically you have to do the following -loosen lug nuts -jack the vehicle up and place on jack stands -remove wheel -remove upper ball joint cotter pin and nut -remove lower ball joint cotter pin and nut -with pickle fork/ball joint removal tool remove both upper and lower ball joints from steering knuckle -disconnect tie rod end from knuckle (optional depending on clearance) -disconnect strut (be sure to install strut spring compressors) -with ball joint press you will need to press both ball joints out (you also use the press to install ball joints)
Installation is reverse of removal.
For exact instructions you can buy the manual for about $20 or go to autozone.com, register, and view the manual on their site for free.

How to remove cv 1994 pulsar to replace outer d/side boot


  1. Raise the front of the vehicle and support it on jackstands, then remove the wheel and the tire assembly.
  2. Remove the cotter pin from the drive axle.
  3. Have a helper firmly apply the brakes, and loosen the hub nut.
  4. Remove the caliper assembly.

It is not necessary to disconnect the brake hose from the caliper. Position the caliper out of the way and secure with mechanics wire.
  1. Using the removal tool HT72520000 or equivalent, remove the tie rod ball joint from the steering knuckle.
  2. On 1982-86 vehicles, disconnect the ball joint from the lower control arm, by removing the mounting nuts from the bottom of the control arm.
  3. On 1987-90 vehicles, disconnect the ball joint from the steering knuckle, using removal tool HT72520000 or equivalent.
  4. Using a block of wood and a mallet, separate the halfshaft from the hub/steering knuckle assembly. If the assembly is difficult to separate it may be necessary to use a press/puller tool.

In order to protect the halfshaft from damage, it is a good idea when striking the halfshaft, to temporarily install the hub nut.
  1. Drain the lubricant from the transaxle.
  2. Support the engine properly and remove support bracket if so equipped.
  3. Remove the halfshaft from the right side on automatic transaxle equipped vehicles and on all manual transaxles as follows:
    1. Insert a suitable prybar between the inner CV-joint and the transaxle.
    2. Carefully pry the halfshaft from the transaxle.


When removing the driveshaft from the transaxle, do not pull on the driveshaft. The driveshaft will separate at the sliding joint (damaging the boot).
  1. Remove the left side halfshaft on automatic transaxles as follows:
    1. Remove the right side halfshaft as outlined above.
    2. Insert a slotted screwdriver, from the right side of the transaxle.


Make certain that the screwdriver is properly aligned into the slot in the halfshaft.
  1. Tap the screwdriver with a mallet to remove the left side halfshaft from the transaxle.

  1. Pull the hub/steering knuckle assembly away from the vehicle and remove the halfshaft from the transaxle.

After removing the halfshaft from the transaxle, be sure to install a holding tool to hold the side gear in place while the axle is removed.
To install:
  1. Always use a new circlip on the driveshaft and install a new oil seal to the transaxle.
  2. Install the halfshaft into the transaxle.

When installing the driveshaft into the transaxle, use oil seal protector tool KV38105500 or equivalent to protect the oil seal from damage; after installation, remove the tool.
  1. Align the halfshaft with the hub/knuckle assembly and connect the lower control arm-to-ball joint.
  2. On 1982-86 vehicles, connect the lower control arm to the ball joint and tighten the control arm-to-ball joint nuts to 40-47 ft. lbs. (54-64 Nm).
  3. On 1987-90 vehicles, connect the lower ball joint to the steering knuckle and tighten the stud nut to 43-54 ft. lbs. (59-74 Nm).
  4. Connect the tie rod to the steering knuckle and torque the tie rod stud nut to 22-36 ft. lbs. (30-49 Nm).
  5. Install then hub nut and tighten to 87-145 ft. lbs. (118-197 Nm).
  6. Install new cotter pin in drive axle and mount the caliper assembly.
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  8. Road test for proper operation.
