CV joints
« on: February 21, 2010, 01:17:47 PM »
I have a CV joint getting pretty noisy lately.  I bought a set of new Empi axles from Van Cafe that were made in China.  Would you install them on your vehicle?  Has anybody used them?

I have used Empi, they work well-Pat at RPM, Stanhope NJ,  has sold them for years, said the same..I've known him as my best 'parts consultant' for over 40 years.

I get mine at the local foreign auto parts store.  I used just about anything I can get my hands on.  Rebuilt german, new Chinese.  They usually cost my about 75 dollars an axle.  They usually hold up just fine.  So long as the boots don't rip, they'll be good for a 100K miles before you should think about regreasing them.
