If you're tired of hearing loud noises as you accelerate down the freeway, it's probably time to replace that CV (constant velocity) axle, which is primarily used in front-wheel drive vehicles. Without a properly functioning CV axle, your ride can have problems turning and can even become undrivable. AutoZone provides the perfect CV axle for your specific make and model so you can get back on the road without any headaches.

The most frequent problem with the CV axle is when the protective boot gets ruined or cracked. If the boot is cracked or damaged, grease comes out and dirt and moisture gets in, causing the CV joint to wear out quicker, due to lack of lubrication. Without the proper lubrication, extreme friction and heat cause the articulating assembly to crack.
Another common symptom of a damaged CV axle is a popping or clicking noise whenever you turn your vehicle. The noise can get louder after accelerating your vehicle while turning. In extreme cases, a severely damaged outer CV joint can break while driving, which could make your vehicle undrivable.
CV joints can be at either end of a CV axle. Both can potentially fail, but it's more common for an outer CV joint to fail because of its greater range of motion. For example, your outer CV joint can get ruined after making a very sharp turn or a U-turn. One symptom of failed inner CV joint is when side-to-side shaking occurs during acceleration. Another symptom of a worn-out inner CV joint is when clunking noises arise after shifting from drive to reverse.
