What Are Signs Of A Bad CV Axle?

The front CV axle in your Duramax truck can suffer a few different failures. Some of the most common axle problems include a bent axle, broken axle, or sheared splines on your axle shaft. These problems usually showcase themselves with clunking sounds coming from the front, wheel area vibrations, and grinding noises.

Can You Drive With A Broken CV Axle?

Driving with a broken CV axle is impossible as you will lose the power transfer to the drive wheels. A bent axle can still be driven on if it is not drastically bent, but a broken front axle will cause your vehicle to be unable to move. Most instances require the truck to be towed to your local repair facility to fix the axle before it is driveable.

How Much Does It Cost To Fix A Front Axle?

The type of truck, the number of components that need to be replaced, and the cost of the replacement components will all affect the overall cost of replacing front axles. You can estimate your replacement to be around $500-$1,000 for a factory replacement axle repair. Looking for a quote? Contact us to get a full estimate.
