CV Joint question
It sounds like the CV Joint in our '02 Forester is starting to go. Making a clicking sound when turning the wheel to the right and accellerating from a stop. Car has 105k miles on it, and no other real problems. Had both headgaskets replaced under warranty at 95k miles, and the radiator and radiator support, water pump, etc replaced under warranty at 45k miles. Otherwise no real issues.
Always have run stock sized rims and tires. No off-roading or hard use. Not sure what causes these things to go bad.
1-Is it easier to just replace the axel than to replace the joint?
2-How hard is just a CV Joint replacement?
3-What would be the cost for either option?
4-Where is the best place to get the parts, and new, used, remanufactured?
5-If one is going, should I replace both?
Any help is appreciated.
I miss my turbo, and my 6-speeds of fun.
