I just started having problems with my c-v axles. So I replaced them both but my right one still binds up. I t really binds up when I make right turns and it pops. I was told that it was my hub bearing causing my problems i'm not sure if it is or not.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

If these CV's were repaired rather than new, the internal clearances of the CV cage, Bearings and tripod mount may be to tight, often repaired CV have oversize bearings fitted and the cage and tripod ground down to give clearance, but they often get it wrong, check if your CV's are new, I don't think the hub bearings have any say in the matter.
