If and when you do ever replace, I suggest this route, too. You can also get some at Autozone
. I got mine for $150 each, but they have lifetime warranties and you get $100 back for bringing in your old ones. So in the end, each CV half axle costs a one time fee of $50 to replace, and it doesn't take long. If its your first time tearing it all apart, it'll probably take you a while, and the cone washers may be a pain.
