CV Joints

If you are hearing a "clicking" or "clunking" sound coming from under your car there is a good chance your CV joints are starting to go bad. CV (constant velocity) joints are responsible for providing a direct link between the axles and the wheels. They allow the power to be distributed evenly throughout varying degrees of rotation and can fail. One of things you can do to prevent their failure is to inspect the boots that cover the joints and make sure they are not ripped or torn. CV joints should be disassembled, inspected and repacked in the appropriate grease as needed.
CV Joint Grease
Remember to lube and pack your CV joints when you replace them. Pelican carries both the LubroMoly and the Swepco 101 grease for complete lubrication of your joints. Both are very good and very slippery. Each contains enough grease to effectively one CV joint from completely dry.

Avoid stripping your bolt heads and spending wasted hours cutting and grinding them off by using this special tool to easily remove those pesky CV joint bolts. This tool is for use with 12-point star-shaped bolts only. Please make sure to check your bolts before ordering. It's common for previous owners to replace the 12-point star shaped bolts with more standard allen head bolts instead. Although the 12-point pattern allows you to get a better grip on the bolts (with the correct tool), and apply the high torque that the bolts require, previous owners may have stripped out these bolt heads by attempting to use a torx or hex driver instead of the proper tool. A word of caution here - these other tools MAY work, but if they strip the bolt head, then you are in for an entire afternoon of grinding it off the next time it's replaced.

TIP: Spray the bolts down with WD-40 or Liquid Wrench first to loosen the dirt and debris in the bolt head, then scrape out any dirt that may be left. With the socket on a 6" extension, slip the tool into the bolt head and give it a gentle rap on the end with a mallet to seat it firmly. Following this simple procedure will hopefully avoid you from stripping any CV bolts.
