View Full Version : For those hoping to replace torn CV boots/half axles....

10-07-2007, 07:12 PM
Decided to tackle dis bitch today....I had purchased the half axles from Napa for about $160 for both, I'm pretty sure I'll get about $80 back when I return my worn pair.

I'm an amateur mechanic at best, but I can follow instructions and I don't mind taking all day to get it done right.

This being said this whole thing took about 3 hrs, which included a trip to Autozone, Schucks, and Napa and a 1hr lunch break :grin: I broke 3 sockets and a socket wrench and had to buy a new breaker bar and some 1/2" drive sockets.

Anyway, this was freakin' cake. If I had all the working tools I needed this would have taken an hour, tops. In fact, this may be the easiest thing I've ever done to my car.

I used a write up from NASIOC (http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1223616) that was a great walk through and detailed enough I didn't spend anytime scratchin' the dome.

If anyone needs some advice, lemme know.
