Constant-velocity joints (aka CV joints) allow a drive shaft to transmit power through a variable angle, at constant rotational speed, without an appreciable increase in friction or play. They are mainly used in front wheel drive and many modern Rear wheel drive carswith independent rear suspension typically use CV joints at the ends of the rear axle halfshafts, and increasingly use them on the propshafts.
Constant-velocity joints are protected by a rubber boot, a CV gaiter. Cracks and splits in the boot will allow contaminants in, which would cause the joint to wear quickly.
At Kotwals Motor Spares, ALL our CV Joints carry a year in-house warranty, giving you peace of mind. We stock a large range of both Inner and Outer CV joints, as well as CV Boots.
(When calling in for a CV joint- particularly on a new car- please ensure you have counted the inner and outer splines- as this will greatly assist your salesperson in assisting you hassle-free.
