How To Tell When It Is Time To Replace The CV Joints In Your Car

Front-wheel drive cars and some four-wheel-drive trucks use drive axles with a constant velocity or CV joint at the wheel that allows the axle to pivot and turn with the steering and still transfer power to the wheel hubs. Over time, the joints can wear, and CJ joint replacement may be necessary. There are some signs to watch for that can wear you when the CV joints are bad, and if you neglect them, they can eventually break, leaving the vehicle stranded and unable to move under its own power.
