I checked NAPA website, depending on engine size, trans, etc u joint should be approx. $30. I would think a good garage could do it in an hour. To try and determine if this is the problem you can do the following: Block the front wheels securely, jack up the back of truck (rear wheels off the ground) put truck in neutral (not running!) get underneath locate u joint (it's at the end of driveshaft and in front of the rear axle). Grab onto it with both hands, try to move it back and forth. Depending how bad it is, you should be able to notice some wobble, or play at the u joint. If your truck is full time 4x4, you will not be able to check it this way. Truck should be out of 4X4 to check this way. Grease all the lube points on the suspension twice a year, this will prevent stuff like this wearing out quickly. (some u joints are sealed and can't be greased)A repair manual will show you all the lubrication points, type of grease to use etc for about $20 good luck! countrycurt0

The steering wheel makes a clicking sound but not that loud when driving straight or when making a turn. Is that mean the rack and pinion of my car are bad?

Take it back to the dealer. The problem could be a Constant Velocity Joint wearing out.
Replacing the rack and pinion is an exceedingly expensive repair. Replacing a CV joint or axle is significantly less expensive.
It sounds as if your dealer is honest.

How much would a cv boot part be for 1997 lexuse es 300 3.0p sedan 4a

you will have to contact a shop that repairs cv joints and drive shafts
genuine ( same as generic) will be expensive
the real cost will be to remove the drive shaft to fit the boots
however there is a boot that can be fitted over the cv joint with removing the shaft
lot cheaper and con be done by anyone with a bit knowledge and tools
available from cv joint shops or some auto spares shops

Show me hoe to repair a cv joint for a Saturn Vue 2006?

Buy the shaft assembly instead of trying to change the cv joint on your shafts. They aren't much more expensive and will save a ton of time. Remove wheel, brakes, rotors, axle nut. Slip the shaft inward and press out if the hub. Then simply pop it out of the other end. There is a retainer clip on the differential side that springs in and out of place. A prybar or long screw driver helps pop it past the detent.

I have a bad vibration in overdrive around 50-55 mph on 2004 chevy avalanche

The first palce I would check is the drive shaft and universal joints. These will cause vibrations when they are about to go out. If there is any play at all in the universal joints they need replaced. Not a hard or expensive repair and like I said check them for play before you go any further.

How do i replace a cv joint on 1999 cadillac eldorado

lots of trouble and expense and all you get is one new joint. trade that labor expense and for about the same money get a new or reconditioned axle that has 2 good cv joints, boots, and new axle. and you can change out the whole axle yourself much easier than the joint.

I think the front-right CV joint may be going out on my 2003 Solara SLE (it makes a funny noise when I turn the car while I am driving, but not from a complete stop). What would be the least expensive...

If it is the CV joint (and it does sound like it is), the least expensive option will be to replace the CV joint. This is really the only solution available, but the popping or funny noises can also indicate other worn parts such as struts, shocks, tire rod ends, and even the rack and pinion in your steering system. I would check all of this before going through the aggravation of replacing the CV joint.

Banging noise out of the center of the car whenever i make a right turn

hi, the problem your having could be one of a couple of things.
1. it could be the track rod end coming from the steering rack this is a common fault all cars get from time to time its not expensive to repair but will need specialist tools
2. It could be the bottom ball joint but if it was going to be this then you should hear a knocking noise when you go over bumps etc.
3. the wheel bearing itself could be on the way out the parts for this are not expensive but their is alot of work involved in doing this repair.

With all 3 jobs your going to need specialist tools of some kind ie ball joint splitter, tracking rods to reset the track rod ends to ensure the wheels are at the right angle.

Hope this is some help to you let me know if you need further assistance ok
