just get a whole new (rebuilt) axel. less work for you for about the same price.

dude rebuilt is just like new. they use new parts for the joints and stuff. there is no point of paying money for the shaft itself if its not broken. i dont know about you but i aint going to honda/acura to pay $400 for axels when i can get both for $100.
and their axels are most likely rebuilt also but they tell you they are new and they rape you with the $$$$$

You are talking about the Boot that protects the "CV"= Constant Velocity joint. Not CB whatever that is supposed to mean.

And to repair a CV boot, all you need to do is got to our local Acura dealer and get a boot kit, you will need both inner and outer boots/kits. That is IF you are doing this yourself. Like $35.

If this is what you are talking about, then the boot kit is all you need to do it.

I can't for the life of me think why these other guys thought you needed a fully rebuilt axle? The boot kit is what you need 'IF" the boot is torn and the axle is in pretty good shape with a small tear and still has some grease left on the axle.

If you need a mechanic of shop to do it, you must remember to include their going hourly rate. Count on 3 hours "with beer!"

Good luck,

A.

PS oh, and remember NOT to get the half boot kit's and remember TO get the OEM kit since it fits perfectly and is good for quite a long time.

hey man i hear what youre saying. but in order to change the boot you have to take the axle appart. and thats a pain in the ass. you are better off just getting another axle.

Me personally, I'd save the money and spend the $30. to $50. on the OEM boot kit and spend the time doin it. Especially if the joint is NOT damaged.


Whats the goin rate for your way as opposed to mine?

Thanks, I'll stay with my way, and save some $$$! Plus you get to learn more than you ever wanted to about Constant Velocity joints.

As much as i would like to just spend 35 dollars, my cv(thats what I ment before) is torne about 95percent, so I am better of just replacing the whole thing.

well u said the boot kit is $35 dollars and takes about 3 hours or so to change.
i can get a rebuilt axle for $50 and do it in less than one hour.

Maybe you are just misunderstanding?

Even if the boot is torn, as long as the CV joint is still greased and is in decent shape and doesn't have too much road dirt /debris in it and or it is Not making a clicking sound, You can replace the Boot's and Not the whole axle.

Although this job is a Pain in the Ass and Dirty as Hell, it is alot cheaper than a whole axle and or having a mechanic do either.

The choice is yours and I agree that Just the axle is an option, don't get me wrong. BUT, in the interest of saving some of your hard earned money possibly for a future mod, you Can Just do the CV Boots: "inner and outer is required for the outer, and inner is all you need for inner damage."

Good luck,

A.

PS, remember that OEM boot kits are the way to go, Don't ask me how I know. And The half boots Suck A55!

I just tore my outer cv boot too. My first question is, how do you get access to the boot? You have to take the hub off, and Im pretty sure that means you have to get the hub nut off, but I cant for the life of me figure out how. I broke my 2 1/2 foot breaker bar trying to get that crap!

Soo, I just took my car to meineke and they replaced the boot for $85 in under an hour. Wish I could have done it myself but I needed my car back.

go to rxales.com and they give you the entire assembly: inner, outer joints and shaft for $110 when you ship back the core.

i had pretty much the same post a month ago, and it all depends on the condition of the CV joint.

Its a question of how low you've been riding with the boot torn. Mine was split all the way around, and all the grease had been spun out. By the way, its a special type of grease: molybdenum disulfide grease. If there is any grit in the joint, replacing the boot alone isn't good enough, the halfshaft has to be replaced. Mine cost like $200 or something for parts and labor because i needed the halfshaft replaced. If you are going to do it yourself, get a Chilton Manual for $23. It's all there, and says how to do it. If you want, i could post the pages out of chilton for you. good luck
