Front Drive Shaft CV Assembly

I have removed the front drive shaft. What I found is the CV assembly is completely destroyed. Is there anything I can do? To me it seems that the ball centering kit that I would have purchased would have fixed the problem but the pin is damaged and so is everything associated. Will I need to buy a whole new shaft and if so where?

Yea with the pin being damaged might be an issue. You should be able to bring it to a local driveshaft shop in the area to see if can be fixed & rebuilt.

Otherwise I would recommend getting a Front DS from either Coast Driveline, HAD (High Angle Driveline) or Tom Woods.

take it to a local driveline shop and they can put a new cv end on it.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Any small local driveshaft shop can easily (!) and inexpensively rebuild that CV. Don't waste $$$ by buying a new DS.
When you have a choice, buy American.
