Changing CV joints
1997 Ford Escort sedan, 4 door.
How hard is it to change the CV joints.
How do I even inspect them to make sure that is the problem.
What is involved in changing them.
I can feel a bump-bump-bump-bump.... thru the steering wheel.
It can also be felt sitting in the passenger seat.
I inspected the tire on that side, and found a knot.
When I changed the tire, I found the tire was coming apart.
Changing the tire helped for a while, but the problem returned.
I'm thinking at the very least it is gonna need 2 new tires
and an alignment. And I think possibly CV joints.
20 years ago I wouldn't have had a problem tackling this job.
But now I want to know should I do it or have it done.
If I have to do it I'll get a Hayne's manual for it.
If it's not too involved to do it I will do it myself.
Or if it is cheap to have done I'll have it done.
I just need to know what I'm facing here.
