    Default 2007 Hilux Inner Cv joints

    Good Day Gents

    Just tried to do my alignment and picked up that inner CV joints have a fair amount of play .

    Has any one replaced them of their Hilux lately . Been quoted R4k to replace both sides inner , outer and drive shafts .

    A wise old mechanic once told me to never change only one CV joint. If one is wonky, the others will follow soon.

    The price sounds reasonable to me although this is the second time in my life that I hear about Toyota cv joints that need replacement. The other was an early 90's Corolla. Toyota cv's just last and last.

    Buy the OEM complete shaft with CV`s. The last time I checked they were around R4700.00 each. Have yet to find recon CV`s that last on a Hilux.
