Bad CV joint!!!

Well Ive been having this clunk in the front end, well I cant really hear it. Its not that pernounced, but I can def. feel it in the floor board and in the cab. Its most pernounce when going slow or turning. So what do you guys think would be the cost of new cv's if they are indeed bad?

Napa has some with a lifetime warranty for around $100.00......I think that price is for the whole DS....

If you can have someone stand near the front of your truck as you creep forward, while turning the wheel, maybe they can identify the source of the sound...

if its the cv axles...those are an easy fix...well..labor intensive but not complicated...

Yeah I know its not that hard, but Ive never done it before.... and I love my truck too much to screw something up....I dont have much self confidence!

But I dont think it is... I mean it shouldnt be, bc I dont go offroading and beat the crap out of my truck.

The UCA bushings and the Tie rod bushings go bad on the 1st gens, both can be felt on the floor. Something to look for

Which is why I told him to de presurize the bushings on his TC's and let them settle back to where they should be.

Dont know how much grease I should have taken out, but it was quite a bit. This is what I did... I loosened the bolt and tapped on the bushings and washings loosened it up to let air get in. Then tightened them so that the grease flowed out of the zerk holes. did it till no more grease could come out. then put the zerks back on. tightened them up to spec and thats it.

Ok, Good. Thats how they all should look. If the others dont go down, do the same thing again. Maybe loosen up the UCA bolt more, and disco the Uniball from the spindle, then cycle them by hand. I hope you havent driven on them too long like that.
