CV axles are designed to transmit the power from your vehicle's drivetrain to the wheels while being able to flex and pivot to the demands of the steering and suspension systems.  If your vehicle is making clicking noises at lower speeds or when making turns, it may be time to replace your CV axles with our 100% brand new assemblies.

Note: You may need to reuse your original inner stub shaft with this new replacement CV axle.  The splined shaft on the inner joint from your original assembly can be removed and installed onto the new CV assembly.

Do these axles come per greased?
Matthew H April 21, 2016
Yes, these will come with the boot completely on the axle. These will have grease in these boots.
Derek C April 21, 2016
Does this axel fit driver side cause I know the passenger side is a little longer?
John S June 10, 2016
The 2 cv axles driver and passenger are the same. Its the intermediate axle shafts that are different
Brian F June 10, 2016
The CV axle shafts on the 2002-2005 Dodge Ram 1500 are both the same length. So yes it will work on the drivers side. The front differential is offset, which might be what you are thinking of.
