I need to replace a CV joint in my 96 Civic, and figured I'd do both while
I'm at it. I had planned to do it myself.
I called Honda to see what they're getting for this and he wants $181 labor
and $479 parts for two remanufactured Honda full axles.
With a labor to parts ratio like that I'm tempted to just let the dealer do
it. What do you guys think? Is it a total pain in the rear? I'm guessing
that it'd take me 5 hours at least simpily because I've never done it
before, and I tend to be methodical and thorough. $181 / 5 = $36.20/hr. I'd
be saving/earning for doing it myself. At that rate I'm starting to waver
and lean towards letting the dealer do it.
Someone please tell me it's really simple and I'll be happy if I did it
