Unless the joint has been exposed to grit/dirt and driven hard, the joint should be OK once its cleaned and regreased. I've not seen one that was damaged beyond repair. If yours is, Id suggest a wreckers yard to pick up some used ones.
What year and model do you have and is it engine side or tranny side axle? V6 or 4-cyl? A/T or manual tranny? RHD ot LHD?mates,
where are people sourcing cv joints/axles? I've got a grinding noise, worse on turns, that I think is the right side axle. I see some inner joints and boot kits, but that's about it. any suggestions?
Be advised you need major impact gun power to remove axle nut.Alfisto Steve - pretty sure it's the outer and the boot is old and shows aging cracks but I can't really see a rip through - doesn't mean there isn't one - thanks for the info on both axles being same left and right - that'll make the search easier
'don't have a compressor but did an axle nut few hrs ago on my Saab 900 and I had to fabricate something like a 6 feet extension to be able to loosen itBe advised you need major impact gun power to remove axle nut.
