Question

I ran into a problem. The front end would make a thumping/clicking noise when I get the car up to 65mph or higher. The noise would get worst when I get the car up to 65 mph and gently turn the wheel toward the left, then when I turn the wheel toward the right, it stops!! Today, I got fed up and jacked the car up and did a visual test and lookie what I found on the driver side







yup, good ole SNOT or CV fluid all over the place. So, I went to Advanced Auto Parts and ordered one for $129 and a $40 refund when I bring the core back. Oh yeah, I have a 2002 Grand Prix and I had to get a 2000 CV shaft(they are the same), ok, the guy said it should only take me about 2 hours to install, so, if anybody out there ever did this, could you throw me some pointers..

Thanks

The hardest part is getting everything off to get to it... If you have access to air tools, it will be much easier. The nut on the end of the shaft is a big mofo, with air tools it comes off a little quicker. I borrowed the cv puller from autozone, makes things so much easier. If you want to stop by the house, I can help you with it...
