  1. Agreed. That is what surprised me, that other side works just fine all the time. i got both cv axles from Pep Boys, but in different stores, and they re-manufactured/refurbished. so maybe they not built well. i guess i will wait when it fail, and replace with new one. and will consider to install limiting straps. to protect CV and struts.
  2. thanks a lot for hint! Googling about limiting straps... hope it will not require welding:)
  3. Hello All, I'm new in the forum with posting (but i was following and reading all your forum and FAQ last month). With all your recommendation i have successfully lifted my Pathfinder 1999 for 2", with 1.5" spacers on front and 2" spacers on rear from ebay (from fleurys2). They worked great, and was relatively easy to install. Now it looks awesome and i like how it drives (also i installed bigger tires, 31", and wheels spacers 1.5" to make them wider) So, to the point: i have replaced both CV joints, as boot was damaged(and one was blown up during first off-road test drive), and front wheels/drive was never used for last 10 years(it was commute car from the previous owner). So, after lift, my right axle making noise when steering to the edge, and especially moving backwards. even worse when i tried to lift front of the car and hang both front wheels. In this case right wheel blocked from spinning by extreme position of the axle joint. it means, when i'm off road, and if my front wheel is free i will blowup my axle even without attempt to turn. So question to all you, have you had the same? if there any extended axles available? i guess i need just 1/2-1" extra of the shaft between CV joint. Any information will be helpful. i can post before after pics, when figure out how to do it.
