Testimonials

Marty,
Your core will go out tomorrow, UPS in your return box…..
I asked my mechanic, “is this axel any better than what is sold at Kragens or where ever, I had a quote of 100 for a rebuilt, and Kragens auto parts had a new one for about the same 100 bucks……
His response,, “I put the old axel and new one side by side because you took the time to order this from Florida when you could have bought one right down the street”; after inspecting them, he stated , the one from Florida is better than anything he has ever installed as a replacement CV joint here in California. He read your paper work that came with the CV joint and hands down, next time he needs one for his car he will be calling you….
For the record, I worked dealership body shops for 14 years; there are people who call themselves mechanics that I wouldn’t let pump up a bicycle tire, and there are those that call themselves mechanics but are nothing more than parts changers; they change parts on your car till they fix the problem; there are very few that can put their hand on the hood of your car and diagnosis the problem and give you a exact diagnosis and price…
Being in your line of work you know what I am talking about, Mark is one of those chosen few that can look at your car and tell you what it needs without opening the hood; those comments about your product coming from him; it is like coming from the Messiah as far as I am concerned…
This is the third axel I have ordered from you guys, none defective, none ever gone bad.
If anybody is on the fence after reading this about paying a few extra bucks and buying Raxles, call me..
You get what you pay for….
Marty, feel free to give out my phone number if you need a reference…..

Thanks

CV Axles Installation

This section provides the basic procedures for R & R of most C-V Axle assemblies. Use this as a general reference only.

DRIVESHAFT REMOVAL:

  1. Loosen the axle nut with the vehicle on the ground. Raise the car and remove the axle nut and washer(s)
  2. Remove any heat shields, exhaust, or engine mounts that may prohibit easy removal of the axle. 
  3. Disconnect the ball joint from the control arm and un-bolt the strut rod (if required).
  4. Grasp the outer C-V joint housing and push the wheel hub assembly away from the splined shaft. On some models, there is an interference fit between the hub and outboard C-V joint; on these you should: a) use a wheel puller, or b) screw the nut back on the outer C-V joint a few turns (this is done to protect the threads) and, using a plastic mallet, knock the joint loose by hitting the nut. NEVER STRIKE THE C-V JOINT DIRECTLY!
  5. Gently pry the inboard C-V joint away from the transaxle with a suitable bar. (Note: Do not let the axle hang freely at either end. This can damage the axle or transaxle assy's.)

DRIVESHAFT INSTALLATION: 

  1. While suspending the outer C-V joint housing, slide the inner C-V joint into the transaxle, taking care not to damage the oil seal or axle boot. 
  2. Push the inner C-V housing into the transaxle until you can hear or feel the retaining clip snapping into its groove in the ring gear. DO NOT HIT THE INBOARD C-V JOINT WITH A HAMMER. 
  3. Align the outer C-V joint spline to the wheel hub and pull the hub assembly onto the C-V joint. Use a puller, if necessary, taking care not to damage the C-V boots.
  4. Inspect the ball joint for wear or damage, and replace if necessary. Reconnect the ball joint to the control arm. (Note: Many manufacturers require replacement of the ball joint nuts upon re-assembly.)
  5. Install all of the old washers and finger tighten the new axle nut. Install all shielding and other parts removed to facilitate the repair. 6. Place car on ground and torque the axle nut to specifications.
