An axle half shaft replacement is often recommended if the part has been removed during another repair and inspection shows that it is worn and due for replacement.

We recommend using new replacement CV axle shafts. Due to the dropping part prices, it has become very economical to do so, and new units are much more reliable than rebuilt units.

A "clicking" noise when turning can be from a failing CV joint. In many cases, the CV axle shaft will need to be replaced.

After the repair, if there are any "clicking" sounds when making turns, return to the shop to have them further address the problem. It's likely that the CV joint needs to be replaced.
