Replacing CV Joint/Axle

I have the dreaded clicking noise when making a turn. After reading up on it, i think it might be the CV Joint. People have suggested just replacing the axle by itself as the labor cost is the same.

Now looking for OEM honda axles is going to bump the cost of this repair by around 700 dollars.

Is it okay to use aftermarket or refurbished axles? Which is the best aftermarket axle and what is the approx cost of doing this?

Thanks.

I went to my local Honda dealership when I could no longer take the clicking. They gave me two options: replace with OEM axles for $2300 or aftermarket axles for around $700. There was no thinking about it. 25,000 miles later, the aftermarket axles are doing fine with no problems and no clicking.

You should go find a local shop that you trust to do the job, I replaced both half shafts for $99/each parts and then labor was a couple hundred bucks

You can find the half shafts on amazon for about $80/each

It really shouldn't be more than a $500 job

Half shaft has the CV boot built into it, it's all one piece

I got a passenger side axel from advanced auto when mine broke for about $60. It was a rebuild so basically an oem. Havnt had any problems and its been a few monthes. It wasnt all that hard to replace if youve got the right tools

Aftermarket or refurbished is fine. I can do both axles myself for about $200. Should be able to find a reputable shop willing to do it for less than $500. Maybe as low as $400.

I looked for parts and looks like cardone is a reputed refurbished manufacturer. They cost around $63.00 each.

Another question, if we change the passenger side, do we have to drain the transmission fluid? And what about the ridged rings on the boot that differentiate the ABS vs non ABS?

Sounds about right from what everybody's saying.

Get it replaced soon as you can, ****s when those things break on you. Your car no go.

You do not have to change the fluid. Don't know anything about the boot differences. Sorry.

I purchased a refurbished axle at Autozone for my old GS-R, it came with the abs ring.

check with Rockauto.com and see what their site says. I have to believe that you can order with or without the tone ring.

Thanks for the video. So did you have those tone rings in the replacement axles you bought?
