Our first big snow was Thursday morning and the 16yo learned that drifting an AWD car and curbs aren't a good pairing. Have a bent control arm and a CV that looks like it's unrelated, boot ripped in half and grease everywhere. I found a used control arm in a yard and will get an Autozone CV. I've watched a few Youtubes and read through the FSM I have, looks pretty straightforward. But wanted to make sure I'm not missing anything. Ignore the ripped/rusting steering rack, that's a whole nuther project for later maybe.
- can the 32mm hub nut be reused?
- it appears the CV is held in by a roller pin, not a stub end/c-clip in the diff - is that correct?
- any other easy source for a new cotter pin for the bottom castle nut? Don't know if that's a dealer only item or something that Autozone would have a generic supply of?
