CV Joint Replacement in Bakersfield, CA
The most common concern with your CV joints occurs when the boot is damaged and results in grease leaking out. This allows dirt and other contaminants to get into your CV joints, resulting in accelerated wear and tear. Early signs of a CV joint issue include grease on the interior of your tire’s rim as well as visible dents or cracks in the boot. As the problem worsens, a clicking noise may occur while turning. This clicking will get worse as you accelerate through the turn.
Your CV joints help the vehicle’s wheels to maintain a constant velocity. Your car or truck has inner and outer CV joints. The inner CV joints connect to your vehicle’s transmission while the outer ones connect to your wheels. Connecting to your wheels allows your CV joints to transfer torque from the transmission to the wheels while also adjusting to the constant fluctuation of your suspension.
Your CV joint placement depends on your vehicle. If you have a rear-wheel drive, your CV joints will be in your back tires. If you have a front-wheel-drive vehicle, they will be in the front tires. Broken CV joints are not repairable. (However, the boot is.) Repairing the boot as soon as it begins to fail can help prevent more expensive CV joint replacements.
