Smart Tips On Used Choosing CV Joints And Axles

Choosing CV Joints And Axles For Your Older Car

CV joints and axles are items that commonly go out on older vehicles. Of course, this always happens long after a warranty will help pay to replace these parts or pay for labor. If you have ever tried to price these critical auto parts, you have probably been shocked by the cost of new parts.

This is true if you purchase them from the original manufacturer or buy after-market parts from a third party vendor. Plus, when you buy after-market parts from an unknown manufacturer, it is not always easy to determine the quality. Some rare vehicles might be hard to fit, and you may have to pay a lot to get the right CV joints and axles too.

Choosing CV Joints And Axles For Older Cars The Smart Way

Here is one other thing to consider. Did you have a problem with your CV joints or axles after your car, truck, or van already had but on 60,000 or more miles? How much longer do you expect to drive that car? If you expect to get another several thousand miles out of your vehicle, does it really make sense to spend the extra money to get brand new auto parts when used parts will be cheaper and do just as well?

Indeed, we can find good quality used CV joints and axles for you in our junk yard. No, having an auto junk yard does not mean that we stock junk. It simply means we take in a lot of vehicles that do not run any more for a variety of reasons. These reasons could mean that:

  • The engine or transmission has gone out.
  • Parts of the body could be damaged in an accident.
  • But they may have have absolutely nothing to do with the quality of CV joints or axles.
  • The vehicle may not have been repaired for the simple reason that the cost of these repairs exceeded the book value of the vehicle.

So you see that it is possible to find a very high quality set of CV joints or axles that were manufactured to fit an auto exactly like yours. If you can find these used, you can assure yourself of getting quality parts at a much lower cost than you would pay for shiny new parts.

Safety Of Buying Used Parts

There should be records kept on parts. These may either detail the year that these parts were made, or it might even include more information about the original vehicle. In some cases, we have even pulled the parts from that original car, truck, or van. We should know the mileage and may even have access to the car’s records.

In addition to knowing something about the history of each part, every customer is invited to join us in visually inspecting used parts. You can even take them to your local mechanic to get his opinion. By combining a visual inspection and studying the records of each part, it should be possible to find the right parts for your vehicle.
