“How long do CV joints last?” is just one of the frequently asked questions. But with the correct maintenance, CVs can easily go 50-100,000 kilometres or more but on the other side, if you are doing poor maintenance, torn boots can easily fail in 2-10,000 kilometres.
What is the role of CV Joints anyway?
Constant Velocity Joints (CVJ) are joints between the drive shafts and the wheels which transmit power and make the car move. These ensure that power is delivered to the tires irrespective of the position of the tires (up/down/turning/straight) relative to the drive shafts.
