ok gang just had the front axles replaced. not good still have the same noise.
( sounds like a stick in spokes of bike )

here are some pics from a different web site same boot riped on my rig


my question is what the hell is this piece. is it spines or more freaking u joints.
i'm speaking of the piece that bolts are on anyone?

Those are CV shafts (constant velocity joints) same idea as the axles on a frt wheel drive car only a little beefier, similar idea to the birfield joints on the Toy frt solid axles.
