I have an '03 Santa Fe with 150,000 miles on it and the CV boots are not
yet torn but have a deep groove in them (getting ready to tear).
a) It is a 2WD, Automatic with the 2.7L V6.
b) Is there a different part if it is an automatic vs a manual?
c) I am 99% sure it does not have ABS. If it did would the joints be
d) Is there a difference between base model, GLS, and LX?
Somebody thought that the ABS versions had a cogged ring around the
hub-side CV, but on my car the passenger side has that while the drive's
side does not.
Is there a benefit to getting these rebooted (even with 150k miles)?
I was thinking getting new out CVs would be wise.
What makes genuine Hyundai units better than after market ones?
A Hyundai dealer elsewhere said they sell after market remanufactured
units instead of new ones and they work just fine.
The local big chain auto parts store has new Chinese axles with
"lifetime warranties" for $60 each. I could go with rAxles.com and get
rebuilts with new CVs for under $180/each. One local Huyndai dealer
quoted me $90 each for their remanufactured after market axles. My local
Hyundai dealer charted something around $230/side to reboot the axles if
they removed them. Not sure what it would be if I brought them in.
Any thoughts on after market stuff? With 150k miles wouldn't the CVs
be getting worn?
