2001 civic cv axle shafts
Excellent, easy to replace and exactly the correct size.

CV axle review
Just installed the axles. Several things Id like to mention. One being that my Honda did not have ABS brakes so the axles were different. Not an exact match. The large teeth on the side of the new axle that fits through the hub was thus redundant. But also by having that teeth there my lower ball joint grease pin was in the way of the axle shaft forcing to remove the grease pin off of the ball joint. That did not make me happy. Otherwise it did fix most of the vibrations coming from the steering wheel. In conclusion the axles worked like new but were not the exact replacement as stock Honda (non abs) axle. Thank you.

I have a 2001 Civic Sedan Non VTEC w/o ABS Automatic, will these work for this application? I had already got a set but they bottomed out before the axle seated in the hub fully. Think they were VTEC axles.
Mike C April 26, 2017
Guess I asked the question in an answer spot... oops.. Will these work on a 2001 Civic Sedan non VTEC, No ABS Automatic? Tried 1 set already but didnt seat fully in the hub, may have been VTEC axles.
