    Any recommendations for a new CV Axle or repair shop? First breakage on my 2013 and the local place to me wanted 500.00 for parts and labor. Replacement axle.

    Is it just a ripped boot or is the axle bad?

    Well I think the joint could be bad. For the last couple of weeks I have been getting a whurring noise from that side. My tires where due for rotation and when I did that it did not go away. I thought it could be a wheel bearing and when I looked I saw the torn/missing inner boot and a mess.

    Gotcha. Well either way I could certainly help you out with this, much cheaper than you got a quote for. If you'd like to replace the axle we could do that, or I can rebuild your current axle (have an OEM rebuild kit on hand), or we can do either of those options + replace your wheel bearing. If you're interested, PM me and we'll see what we can work out. I'm located in Newnan, south of Atlanta about 30 minutes.

    $500 to replace one CV axle is highway robbery...unless that price includes a brand new OEM/Toyota axle then maybe it's about average.

    Replacing one CV axle is a 45 min job, maybe an hour and a half if you're doing it in your driveway for the first time. If a shop is charging more than 1hr labor on it then they're ripping you off.

    Now...rebuilding/rebooting an OEM cv is more involved. That's why most people usually just opt to replace the axle since it's easier and faster. Then reboot/rebuild the old one to have on hand for next time.
