More info about CV Joint replacement:
The CV (Constant Velocity) joints are an essential component of the front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive system. They allow the drive shaft to transfer power to the wheels while allowing the wheels to turn and move up and down.
Regular vehicle servicing and maintenance can help prolong the life of your CV joints. This includes checking the CV boots for any cracks or damage, which can lead to dirt and moisture getting inside and causing the CV joint to wear down. Your local Auto Super Shoppes mechanic will advise you if they notice any issues with the CV boots. CV boot replacement should be done immediately if issues are identified to prevent further and more costly damage to the CV joint.
If the CV joint is damaged, replacement is necessary. Signs that the CV joint may need to be replaced include clicking or popping sounds when turning, vibration or shuddering during acceleration, or grease leaking from the CV boot. Our qualified mechanics will need to remove the drive shaft and replace the CV joint with a new one.
Delaying repairs or replacements can lead to further damage to the CV joint or other components in the drivetrain, resulting in more costly repairs down the line.
