How do i change out my cv axles on my 1992 mitsubishi 3000 gt?

Answer:

Before you even start, loosen the big axle nut you see when you remove the wheel cover. If you can't do that, don't start the job. You need a big breaker bar and socket to loosen the axle nut, and you want the car sitting on its tires when you loosen it. If you don't have jack stands, you can't do the job. A floor jack makes things a lot easier. You'll need an alignment when you finish. Do you want to change your McPherson strut shocks and upper isolator bushings at the same time? If so, you may need a spring compressor tool. Are you really up for this job?

They are fairly easy. You will need to take off the tire. You will then need to remove the 2 bolts on the back of the strut behind the brake rotor. There sometimes are some small bolts holding it into the transmission that need to come out. You'll see pretty easily once you get the tire off what needs to come off. Be ready for some tranny fluid to come out if it is not empty. You can buy a service manual at a parts store for the 3000gt or the stealth for around 20.00 and it is a good investment. It will have step by step instructions and photos.

thats what i kind of did the front was bald so put new ones on front and left ok ones on the back ok for summer but here we get snow, so i lost control alot beacuse of the differences the front had more traction causing the back end to slide out i would say to rotate them when getting an oil change i wouldent think its to costly, probably cheaper then buy new front tires

your tires will last longer! that will save you more money if you do it yourself and its really easy to do. but remember, if you have directional tires, you can't switch them to the other side, you can only move them from the front to the back and vise versa.
