Updated Design: While this part may look different from the one originally installed on your vehicle, it is guaranteed to fit and operate as well or better.

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.

100% New Components

For quality fit, finish, and easy installation.

Heat Treated

For longer-lasting life and consistent performance under different road conditions.

Precision Machined

And made of brand new components, held to tighter tolerances for better consistency than rebuilt parts.

Packaging Issues
The packaging for these CV axles was terrible. They arrived split open and looking like they got run over by a truck, luckily the damage to them was cosmetic and I was able to use them. Better packaging for large heavy items would be great.
