All front-wheel drive cars have Constant Velocity joints, or CV joints, on both ends of the drive shafts (half shafts).

Inner CV joints connect the drive shafts to the transmission, while the outer CV joints connect the drive shafts to the drive wheels. Many rear and four-wheel drive cars and trucks also have CV joints.

A common problem with the CV joints is when the protective boot gets damaged. The grease comes out and the moisture and dirt can come in, causing the CV joint to wear faster and eventually fail.

If a damaged CV joint boot caught early, simply replacing the boot and repacking the CV joint with fresh grease is all that is usually needed to fix the problem.
