Features & Benefits of each NEW CV (Constant Velocity) axle shaft:

  • 100% Neoprene Boots for excellent Ozone resistance. - Eliminates cracking; a leading cause for failure of CV boots
  • 3% moly grease. - Provides excellent high temperature and extreme pressure characteristics which extends the life of the joint
  • Axle nut supplied 100%. - If axle nut from the vehicle is worn or stripped there is no need to buy a separate axle nut because it is provided
  • Splines rolled 100%. - Guarantees proper installation of axle into mating hub and transmission eliminating installation hassle

Note: This is for a pair of axle shaft assemblies.

Axle shafts may need replacing for a variety of different reasons. On vehicles that do heavy work or endure other extreme use you can actually break an axle or strip the splines or teeth. More often the CV joint wears out causing noises and vibration while accelerating or turning.
