Make sure to add some extra varnish/clear coat to your shovel handle, especially where you drilled the holes or it will rot out on you in a hurry.

Also my cv axles have been clicking for awhile what type of axle would you guys recomend?

 

EMPI is pretty good, Rockauto has them. I think Thepartsbin.com has them too. You will need a 23 spline axle (25 spline are for Turbo models)

does EMPI not make rear cv axles? rockauto doesnt list them

 

Nobody makes rear CV axles, that is why it is best to reboot the ones you have before damaging matter get into the joint and wear out.

 

The dealer might be able to get you some remans, but they are gonna cost!

well the boots arent torn there old and starting to crack though so nothing got into them there just clicking at slow speeds like in parking lots so should i just re-grease re-boot and hope for the best?

although i guess once there clicking there probably done for:(

 

Just take them out and switch them to opposite sides. They only wear on the side the force pushes on if you get my drift.

I've never really heard rear axles click since they have DOJs on both ends vs a DOJ and CVJ. I bet the clicking is the front.

 

If the rears are indeed clicking at low speeds in the parking lots, I would service them with new boots and grease (Kendall Super-Blu) since rear axles don't usually have a lot of stress on them and don't need to pivot and turn at the same time, they will last.

no its deffinatly the right rear cv i have had other people drive it while i walk behind and listen according to the PO it had just got both front cvs replaced but im pretty sure there remans but they dont click when i turn so i wouldnt expect them to click in a straight line so im pretty sure what im hearing is the rear

quick question for theloyale were did you find rear cv boots napa only has them for the front are they interchangable?

 

I got mine off Rockauto $5/per. But yes, front axle boots will also work.

Hey, did it end up really being a rear DOJ that was clicking?

I was in the same boat (only didn't have anyone outside the car to tell

me for sure or not) on hearing clicking from the rear, but it turned out to be

a badly worn rear drive shaft u-joint. Did you check those yet?
