Question about GMC Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Take the nut off and you need a tool called a pickle fork. You may be able to rent different sizes from Autozone or Orielly's Auto Parts. I believe this is what you are referring to, the ball joint? If not please clarify.

SOURCE: front cv joint lubrication
you do not lube them they are full of grease.if boot tears and splatters the grease out then you replace boot or anymore just as cheap to replace axle. Some lube centers try and sell a lube service on these where they poke a hole in your boot and pump grease in them.This is a no no as it causes your joint to start leaking

you will have to get ahold of a book for it or go to a junkyard and find one like yours and get the belt routing decal

sadly the people that make cars now a days dont believe in grease fittings you may have to replace it with a after market brand with a fitting

try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you

If the boot is torn it is a good possibility that the shaft may need to be changed. Auto zone and schucks sell aftermarket boots that are called split boots so you don't have to remove the axle. other wise if you buy a new boot you will have to remove the hub cap break the nut loose on the axle then jack up that side and remove the tire remove the brake caliper remove the lower control arm remove the lower ball joint out of the ball joint then force the shaft of the ball joint out of it,s socket pull axle assembly away from the axle and force axle out then remove the old clamps then remove the boot. If it is the outer that's all you need to do if it's the inner boot which some models have then the axle has to be removed from the trans-axle. Be sure to clean the Area where the new boot goes on and clean the U-joint that the boot it covers, when you buy a new boot they should supply you with new grease if they do be sure to pack the grease in the u-joint then install the boot making sure the boot slips into the groove of the axle and slip clamp on and hook it in the spot and bend it forward then bend the tabs over that hold the clamp in place. Be sure where the boot fits it is clean or you will not get it tight enough and it will come off..
