9000 Drivetrain
Reassembly


Now place the new boots on the axle. There are grooves where the top of the boots are supposed to clip to make sure they do not move around. Grease up the CV joint with the supplied grease or use a synthetic alternative. I usually use Mobile 1 synthetic CV grease.

Now, simply push the axle into the CV joint until it clicks. The C-clip will prevent it from backing out.
Tighten the clip on the boot and your ready for reassembly!

Before inserting the axle back into the inner CV joint. Clean out the old grease and feel for any ridges in the inner CV cup. If you feel ridges, then the cups should be replaced at some point as this causes a shake in the steering wheel when accelerating.

Be sure to grease up the inner tri-pod bearing.

Once the axle is back on the car, assembly is reverse of removal. Tighten up the ball-joint bolts, strut bolts, and tie-rod.

Clean up the brake rotor with some break cleaner to remove any grease that may have gotten on it and then place the caliper on the rotor and tighten it down.
