hey folks, i have a 98 ford explorer all wheel drive. the left front cv joint went out, so i replaced it with a new half shaft from the parts house. about 5 miles later when i let off the gas you could hear it start clicking again, it continued to get worse so i chalked it up to bad parts. I returned it and got another one, installed it and the same thing happened. (clicking,shutter). I have looked at the motor mounts and they look fine. does anyone have a idea of what is causing the cv joint to go out so fast? is there something else on the explorer i should check? i am at a loss on this one... thanks for the advice.
maybe the wheel bearing is hooped and not the shaft? :ohcrap:
replaced the hub assimbly still no change!!! $165 down the drain.... does any one have a idea?? :banghead:
maybe define this clicking?shutter when does it happen , speed dependant, only on turns?
Could also be that the shaft was not locked in the differental all the way. :doh:
