When your vehicle’s CV joints and boots become damaged, they need to be repaired as quickly as possible.

Our ASE certified mechanics have been dealing with these types of issues for years, and we can replace those joints and get you back out on the road before you know it.
How to Tell Which CV Joint is Bad
If you have a front-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle, then you are going to have two or more CV axles connected to your transmission. While those joints are designed to be incredibly durable, they must stand up to quite a bit of abuse over the years. Your CV boots need to withstand a lot of wear and tear as well, and that is why you should always keep an eye out for any signs that it might be time to head to a CV axle replacement expert:
- Grease on the edge of the tires
- Clicking noise when turning
- Vibrations while driving
- Bouncy driving on flat roads

CV Axle Leaking? Here’s What You Need to Do
In addition to the axle itself breaking, you might also have to deal with a damaged CV boot at some point. A CV boot is nothing more than a ribbed piece of rubber that protects the axle, and the inside of the boot is filled with a special type of grease. Over the course of a few years, a CV boot can become brittle, and some of the grease will begin to leak out if the rubber cracks. To protect your axles, you must take care of damaged CV boots right away. Replacing damaged boots will increase the lifespan of the axles and save you money in the long run.
If you believe that your CV axles or boots might be damaged, then it is time to bring your vehicle in for a comprehensive inspection. Our team has been addressing these types of mechanical problems for well over 20 years, and we are going to make this process as simple and stress-free as possible.
