OEM. Pay the money and never have to deal with a driveshaft failure again.
Yup. Labor is a bitch
That's because you have to take the whole thing out either way.
I'd probably just get the boot.
But then, I'm also the idiot who chased a boot failure from one side of the car to the other for no good reason at all, other than I didn't know what I was doing at the time.
My acuras had the same issue. $600 to replace both front axles with rebuilt ones. Every 24 mos. what's the charge on 'lifetime' warranty?????
Then disassemble the axle, something mechanics hate doing now.
Labor's a bitch
Yup, this is what you think it is.
a 757hp corvette station wagon.
I'd hit it.
That's gonna leave a mark.
I like it
lol built ford tough.
I'm using this story next time someone tells me they're going with 3M instead of my stuff.
Which I wouldn't recommend using in anything that travels fast.
Or moves at all.
You're just jealous that the shop got to do all the huffing, aren't you?
180 dollars all in, labor included, to replace that CV axle through yourmechanic.
Could not hope for better than that. 94 in labor, 78 in parts.
I am a little broken up over it.

I hope the $78 axle isn't cheap chinesium.
how was the other side?
other side was fine
Mechanic says he sees a lot of odysseys tear up the drivers front boot for no reason.
good, but weird. here (chicago area) the passenger side goes first supposedly due to speeding through the water on the curb side of the road constantly.
any thoughts on why the drivers side? Poor boot design not handling a tighter turn? edit: nope, that's not it. hmmmm.
