Front Axle Shaft Replacement Cost
RepairPrice Estimates are based on the estimated time for the repair, labor rates charged by trained automotive professionals, and prices for quality parts.
These estimates are designed to show a range of fair prices, instead of a single price, because there is more than one part that is appropriate to use in each repair, and more than a single mechanic who is qualified to do the repair.
Each estimate is customized for your vehicle and geographic area. Estimates exclude applicable taxes, diagnostic charges and disposal fees.
Axle/Half Shaft Replacement - Front Estimate (National Average)
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.
