Features & Benefits

Duralast Gold new CV axle assemblies are designed to be the highest quality and most reliable cv axle in the industry. Each axle is designed to meet or exceed OEM specifications and requirements. Every axle is 100% new, manufactured in our state-of-the-art ISO 9001/TS16949 certified facility. Our product development and technical support departments are led by an Ase master certified technician with over 20 years of experience. Duralast Gold CV axles have heat-treated and precision machined solid steel center shafts, cages, races, and bearings with precision rolled splines and threads. Duralast Gold CV axles include all dust rings, cir clips, support bearings, brackets, and hardware where required for installation. Duralast Gold CV axles are ABS consolidated, this means that if there are multiple applications with and without ABS, Duralast Gold CV axles will cover those applications with as few part numbers as possible so long as there is no compromise in fitments or interference from an ABS tone ring. Duralast Gold CV axles are supplied with high quality Neoprene boots and stainless steel boot clamps. Other axles only offer a Neoprene boot on their premium heavy duty optional axles.

    DO NOT BUY!

    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! (1) It was faulty upon installation. Not as bad as the one I removed, but still popped. (2) When I tried to remove it it took 4 DAYS to get it out! I ended up having to take off the boot to gain access to some kind of groove (see other reviews). I then attached a 3-jaw puller attached to a slide hammer. Except that still wasn't good enough. I had to put a large muffler clamp around the outside of the jaws to hold them into place. FOUR DAYS of trying to pry and yank to get it off! Buyer beware! Poor design.

    Pros: NONE

    Cons: EVERYTHING

    Remanufactured C/V Axles

    2 of 2 people found this helpful

    Read Member 3355805 Review. His Experience and Observation are exactly the same as mine. BEWARE of these Axles. YouTube has some ideas on how to extract these axles, once you put it in and have to replace it. After about 5000 miles or so. The bearings loosen and the shaft begins to wobble and makes Noise. Starts at about 40 MPH and the Faster you go the louder it gets and higher pitch. I wrote 25 lines of a review comment for this Member 3355805, confirming his review and it some how DISAPEARED.???????????????????.

    Pros: NONE

    Cons: Impossable to remove and NO Harmonic Balencre.

    Lacks required features

    9 of 9 people found this helpful

    This new CV axle should be great, but it isn't because two important design features are missing. The shaft seems to have been "designed" from the length and the end fittings only. Without these its a well fitting wrong-part with a short life that can't be removed. The lifetime guarantee is best used for a refund.
    First, this half shaft is missing the harmonic balancer that should be on the shaft. This weighted doughnut in a rubber shell acts to smooth out the pulses of the jerkiness that the short drivers side shaft has. Without it, there is added noise and added wear and tear on the transmission and the cv shaft joints. The cost of the omitted balancer is truly tiny, so its difficult to understand why it was omitted.
    Second, this half shaft doesn't have a slot or ridge in the joint housing at the transmission end. The transmission has a recess about an inch deep that the joint is set into. The shaft is captured by a snap ring and a groove on the drive shaft. The slot or ridge is used to pry the joint from the transmission. The snap ring is strong enough that the shaft can't be jerked out of the transmission. The boots will open and the joints will fall apart first. Without a pry feature, the shaft can't be removed. When it requires replacement (and the missing harmonic balancer assures that it will) you're stuck scrambling to devise a large diameter shaft collar to attach to the inner joint to create a pry ridge. I couldn't find a band clamp (hose clamp) strong enough to pry against or a muffler clamp large enough (on a Sunday) and had to cut a slot in the inner joint housing to pry it out.
    This part isn't one you should consider installing. The designer didn't bother to look at the OEM part or the OEM service manual where the parts and these features are described in detail. The result is a part with a short service life that's a nuisance to remove. If you have one that's failed, don't use the lifetime guarantee to replace it, apply the refund to a shaft with the correct design features.

    Pros: New

    Cons: Missing harmonic balancer and removal slot make a short life part almost impossible to remove
