The control arm has to be replaced . for a 1995 sentra it costs 172$ at the dealer and on the web it available for 100$ each .
You have to take it loose from the front bearing then pry it out of the trans. Big Job
Most likely it's a CV joint.
I know you will need a pickle fork or ball joint separator for the joints, other than that i think it just unbolts so sockets and wrenches
could be a contant velocity joint
The rear universal joint on a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder should be replaced when it becomes worn out or broken. Symptoms of a worn joint include rough handling and suspension issues.
Its just above the right inner CV joint, plugged into the bottom/ back side of the engine block. You can only get to it from under the car.
Watch this video on how to replace a u-joint to see if it helps. http://www.myjeepwrangler.com/ Fix-it > u-joint
The 1998 Nissan Ultima control arm is held in place by a retaining nut on both ends of the arm. The ball joint can be removed by using a hammer or mallet.
Define scrubbing please. If it's what I'm thinking it could be the CV joint in a front axle going bad.
don't replace the joint. replace the axle
If you mean the lower suspension arm (wishbone) ball joint, it is fixed into the arm. This means you need to replace the whole lower arm.
The Nissan Sentra is a Front Wheel Drive(FWD), and as such has no u-joint. Since the engine is transversely(sideways) mounted, there is no driveshaft to connect from the transmission to the axe housing. Instead directly fromt he transmission outdrive there are a pair of halfshafts which go out to the wheels. Each halfshaft has an inner and outter CV joint. CV Means Constant Velocity. They are smoother in operation, and can be turned into a deeper arc then can a u-joint usually. As for why CV joints are not used in place of u-joints everywhere t's a matter of economics. u-joints are MUCH stronger, and cheaper to manufacture, but they will not work in a FWD situation. Rear Wheel Drives drivelines are subjected to ALOT higher torque multiplication then any front wheel drive is capable of. While it's possible to get extreme amounts of horsepower out of those little engines, it's the torque that really breaks things, not the horsepower.
A chevy 3500 truck is not front wheel drive, so it does not have CV joints.
The bar is called the sway bar take it of and replace it.
The 2000 Ram had u joints, not cv joints at the front axle.
the constant velocity join is located in the front of the vehicle.(front axle) its pretty simple to replace just look at it and you'll know exactly what to do. straight forward job.
You take it to a mechanic. You need to do an alignment when anything is done to the front end.
Unbalanced tires 99.999999% of the time. rotors bad (get them turned at any parts store) ball joint bad from wear, axles not balanced on shaft to housing, but most likely rotors from improper mechanic work like putting brakes on a bad rotor without getting it turned down...
Remove u-joint clip (CV Joint), remove as an assembly, press bearing out.
Remove the rear U-Joint and be very careful not to loose caps or any needle bearings. Uses lock rings to hold it in place. Tape it together with duck tape. Now pull the drive shaft out of the transmission and remove the front U-Joint from the driveshaft and replace it. Reinstall in reverse order.
As far as I know nobody makes bushings for front control arms of Altima 93-01. Many Internet stores sells complete control arms with bushings and bell joint. I've found one that sells at 79$.
how do you replace a CV joint on a 1992 Chevy pickup?
