Why Do We Recommend Just Replacing The Audi CV Joint On The Axle Shaft Versus Replacing The Entire Audi Axle Shaft?

1) As your Audi front suspension does its job of absorbing impacts and steering the vehicle wheels, the outer Audi axle shaft CV joint flexes vertically and horizontally approximately 3 times the distance as that of the inner Audi axle shaft CV joint. The inner CV joint movement is minimal due to its near proximity to the transmission. Thus, due to the joints different jobs and locations, it is the outer CV joint that is the part that typically wears out, not the inner CV joint.

2) Replacing the outer Audi axle shaft CV joint, in most cases, is also less time consuming. First, because access to the outer Audi axle shaft CV joint usually just requires the removal of the Audi lower ball joint bolt and axle nut. Second, the process of removing the inner Audi axle shaft CV joint mounting bolts is eliminated. Gaining access to these inner Audi axle shaft CV joint bolts can be difficult due to various transmission shields. Tight quarters can also restrict access to the inner Audi axle shaft CV joint on the Audi axle shaft. Third, some models have numerous vin splits and different Audi axle shaft lengths. Blauparts has learned first hand that most, if not all Audi axle shaft re-manufacturers cannot reliably identify the specific Audi axle part specifics at the time of axle shaft rebuilding. As a result, you may have to exchange several Audi axles before you get the right one. Finally, Audi owners who just replace the outer CV joints verses the complete Audi axle, in most cases, save $100.00's of dollars in part and labor costs.

How Do I Know If My Audi Axle Shaft CV Joint Needs Removal And Replacement?

A bad outer Audi axle shaft CV joint will make a clicking noise when accelerating and turning from a stop sign. This is a strong indicator that the outer Audi CV joint is worn. As a general rule the inner Audi CV joint seldom, if ever, makes this clicking noise. The symptoms of a bad inner Audi CV joint is when vibration, shuddering or torquing is felt through the cars steering wheel and is noticed upon straight line accelerating (steering will pull to the left or right).
