Best Practices

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.

Common Symptoms

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

Common Misdiagnoses

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.

This is a national average for all makes and models, but you can make it more accurate by adding your car info and ZIP.
