A little language disclamer. But there is a boom.

I just had to take that back to O'Reilly and tell them "it broke". They gave me another one; no questions asked, besides the obvious reciept.

yeah my sound didnt come from the front so i doubt my problem was a cv.
Yeah, when I was gettin pulled out I kept it on 4lo cause the break was on the power side of the joint. And apparently it wasnt broke all the way off because it snapped again and everybody thought it was my rear end (be it an axle or ujoint, they didnt know) and I almost shit my britches. The rear end is fine now, so no worries.

I was worried about my rear end for a little bit cause I dont have that kind of money to dump into another axle/ujoint.

Well u-joints are pretty cheap.... At least it wasn't the g80(assuming you have one). CVs are easily replaced, and now you can probably get one with a lifetime warranty.

Yeah, I just replaced then not too long ago in prep for this exact thing happening. It just amazes me that everytime I go in to the parts store for CV axles, they ask their little questions, they even ask if it is 2wd or 4wd. Its kinda conscerning (sp?).

Tis a G80 then. They make wonderful noises when they explode, and do lovely things to your diff cover:

Haha yup it made a huge boom and from about 80 yards away I instantly knew it was his rear end. Dude actually drove a little ways after it happened too, limping along in 4wd until that c-clip design caught up with him:

If you and your buddies make a home-made mud pit on the side of your house.... you might be a Redneck.




I like the guy that yelled: "CV JOINT!", lol.
