Steering is about power, precision and control. When you lose any one of those factors, suddenly your joyride through rocky trails can get cut short by a crash or worse. If you're struggling with steering in your Jeep, you may be dealing with a faulty CV joint and defective CV socket yoke assembly. These components come under massive wear during ordinary use, leading to major problems with steering control when turning your vehicle. Replacing the CV joint, though, can often resolve this problem.
What Is a CV Joint? The CV joints on your jeep attach the wheels to the drive shaft and the drive shaft to the transmission, enabling transfer of force and maintaining controlled rotation speed whenever you turn your wheels. A complete CV socket yoke assembly provides the framework to install CV joints and secure them properly to your vehicle.
How to Tell if Your CV Joint Needs Replacing One of the first tell-tale signs of a failing CV joint is a rattling or clicking sound when you turn your steering wheel, even on a slow controlled turn. When your CV joint is clicking, you'll also notice difficulties with steering and guiding your vehicle. That's when you need a new CV socket yoke assembly as part of the process of replacing a faulty CV joint. Usually it's the front drive shafts that take the hardest beating, and need to be replaced the most often.
