CV joints replaced again.
I had my first set of CV joints replaced after I had one showing failure on a road trip in April 2010. At the time I didn't realize that I had the cheap, Chinese version of axel and cv joints (assembled unit) installed. I then, also had the other side replaced that summer as a preventative maintenance measure. Both, unfortunately, were of the cost efficient, but cheaply built Chinese CV joints. Recently I had both sets of joints replaced with the German OEM joints. I couldn't stand the constant faint clicking from one or more of the relatively new joints... Never, ever cheap out if you don't like unnecessary annoying noises in your Vanagon!
