Hi all :)

I'm just about to purchase our second GQ - a 1994/5 4.2 DX diesel with aftermarket turbo already fitted. It's in generally great nick for the asking price - except for one thing..... the CV's sound shot. I put the vehicle on a slippery grass patch and engaged Low Range with the hubs locked and then did some left and right circle work. The front right hub made the familiar clicking sound on full right lock. At least the rear diff's limo works a treat - it tore up the grass big time.

My question is (not having to ever replace them on our other GQ) what are a set of CV's worth to buy and have installed? If these are the only real problem with the vehicle I'll be a good buy. I'll get all axle fluids replaced front and rear at the same time.

Cheers
Chris

Chris, about 6 years ago we got our Rodeo cv's replaced. Genuine parts $1500 plus about the same to have the dealer fit them. Rus.

Hi Chris
There are some very good after market CVs around at very good prices.
They are not difficult to fit, a good job for Saturday afternoon.
Just make sure you have the correct grease

My advice would be to go to Nissan and get a quote for fitting the genuine article fitted at the dealer then negotiate the price and then minus the amount quoted by Nissan with 10 percent added on for your inconvenienceand the possibility of hgidden costs alot of people wont touch even old second hand vehicles unless they are perfect so you are in a great position to negotiate a good deal. Also check the brakes they often need attention and are further ammo for a reduced price. I recently purchased a 94 80 series disal and got him down from 17 to 12600 like this and for an all up price of 15 had a vehicle with new rear brakes including discs, new radiator as well as a new rear hub

Installing them is not a hard job. While at it, regrease everything in the front diff, new seals all round, check brakes, its a 3/4 day job.

You can get upgraded ones from the boys at Haultech in Qld, they are the ones the comp blokes use. (speak to RUFF on outerlimits).... They arent cheap though, but you wont kill em.
