A Visual Look At CV Axle Joints
A New CV Axle is the Best Replacement Practice to Ensure Proper Fit & Long Lasting Performance
CV joint housings are typically forged from iron billets. After the joint is machined, induction heat treating is used to harden wear surfaces. Wear in a CV joint typically occurs on the cage, gear, and cup. This wear is typically caused by a loss of lubrication due to a boot failure, or debris in the joint. Once heat-treated surfaces are damaged, they typically cannot be restored.
