CV Joints

Recommended Posts

I was having so much fun out at the dunes that I forgot to mention that my left rear CV joint came out of the wheel, again, #3! We got it back in and I proceeded to have fun. I took it apart today and cleaned it up and found a most interesting thing, I'm missing one of the balls that go in it. HOW does that happen.

It probably came out and fell on the ground when the cv came out. You need to replace the ball. Go to a bearing distributor and they will either have it or get it for you in a few days. It's probably metric so be sure to mic it or bring one with you. I'm sure it will be a standard ball bearing ball. You need to look at the entire cv assembly and how it's held to the axel and into the spindle housing. There has got to be a clip or some kind of retainer device holding it. Once found, look it over closely to try and determine why it's not holding. if it's a bad groove or sometyhing like that, let me know, maybe I can machine it so it will hold. Haven't had one apart so other then this I don't know what to tell you.

Once you have the axle and cv back together, jack the car up so the wheels are hanging. you should be able to move the axle from side to side, if you can,t your pulling it out, this can also happen when the susp is compresed all the way. there is a clip on the axle stub that holds the axle on.

Thanks, I believe my problem was there from the get go and after talking to Joyner and my dealer, they have agreed to replace it under warranty, thank you Joyner and Apex Motor Sport, should be here early next week, but I will do the check you suggested.

I got my left rear axle replaced and I'm so very happy with Joyner & Apex Motorsport! The only way they could have done better was to come to my house to fix it and bring the drinks. Steve, the owner, took it for a ride and really liked my tires, he said he was trying to come to the Jamboree and get Joyner there too. Any way, NOW I'm ready to go, for the most part.

    • 2016 Joyner T2 1100cc 4 wheel drive

      I have a 2016 Joyner T2 that is giving me problems engaging in and out of 4 wheel drive.  I have read some older posts that address this issue on some older models, but can't get any of the older pics to open for a good explanation.   I have not taken anything apart at this point.  Hoping some mechanically savvy Joyner owners can help me out. Thanks

    • 250cc longer wheel studs

      Hey there folks, we are now stocking longer and stronger wheel studs for the 2500cc line up, including models from Coleman, HiSUN, Benchee, Massimo and others that share the same parts. The fronts are pretty easy to change out as the hubs are aluminum, but the rears are a little harder since they are made from steel. Really helps with different rims, racing, or striped out poor quality OEM versioins. These are rated at 10.9

      Just bought the 18’ Hisun Strike 250. My kids have already put 50 miles on this thing around the neighborhood. I installed an LED whip and Ordered the 2” lift from Matt. Thanks Matt for you hard work with these things. Also, just ordered the 2” wheel Spacers for this from Amazon. Cost me $110 for the 4 Spacers. I’ll post pics when I get the lift installed before and after the spacers.
