I have problems with one of my CV joints on my 1993 Acura. I read the repair manual and they suggest that actually fixing the joint itself is a pain and that most people should just buy a new axle shaft. Now, this car is kind of a beater so I don't want to spend too much money on it, and I have two options:
a. listen to the repair manual and buy a new axle shaft for somewhere around $60. b. ignore the warning and get a CV joint boot kit for $10
Has any of you done a CV joint overhaul? Is is worth $50 to just not have to worry about it, or is the manual exaggerating?
