[DML] Re: Rusty CV Balls



Dave,

I'd say you'd be better off replacing at least the balls, assuming both the 
races and bearing cage are in good shape.  But as you say, the races appear 
abnormal, so you might be better of just replacing the entire joint.  I 
rebuilt my CV joints last year and here's a picture of the balls after 
cleaning.

They had a mirror finish and absolutely no pitting or corrosion.

On another note, I bet you're having fun elbow deep in grease!  That must 
have been the messiest job I've done on the car  :)

Good luck,

One of the CV joints was frozen solid.  I finally got it apart and the
ball bearing are brown and pitted.  The races have a bit of
irregularity to them as well.  Is this repairable or is it time for a
new CV joint?

Thank you,
