When it's time to replace your Arctic Cat ATV CV joints, you have more choices than you might have thought. This article will cover what those options are, and tips for getting the most for your money.
Replace the whole axle assembly - the most expensive but also the
easiest. If both the inner and outer cv joints need to be replaced -
this would be the best choice. A complete axle will cost less than inner
and outer joints separately.If you would like to see prices for yourself, just use the link below for the best daily deals online.
Replace the cv joint - The outer joint (the one that fits in your wheel hub) is the most likely to go bad. New outer replacements aren't that expensive if you know where to get them - and of course we'll tell you that! It will take a little more effort but save a lot more money!
Rebuild the joint - If you catch a split or torn cv boot before the joint has been damaged too much - it may be possible to rebuild it with a repair kit. This is labor intensive - but if you have the time and tools it can save some bucks.
Replace the cv boot - If you're really lucky and find a damaged boot before the cv joint is ruined with water, mud, and dirt - you might get away with just replacing the cv boot. Same job as rebuilding the joint, just a lot cheaper!
