Great video until people realize the importance of torquing the nut NOT only on CV axle, but other nuts and bolts. This CV axle needs torquing because, from what I've learned, there's a lot of pressure put on it so needs to hold exactly specific tightness when going high speeds above 50 mph. There's a reason for torque guys careful what we learn from YouTube, I learn from YouTube myself.

Thanks for the video. I tried doing this but even the 'honda' specific adapter kit did not fit the ball joint. The receiver cup was a little too small and wouldn't let the ball joint come out. What brand adapter kit did you use? I have a 2004 acura tsx. Thanks

Youz a bad mutha fucka! Awesome great job brother.

Hugh Jass says:

Liked your video. One major issue though…when you removed the grease fitting and left the hole open. What's was the plan there? I am certainly glad you have never worked on any of my cars, and that is exactly why I never let anyone work on my cars (only me) if I can prevent it. That one action on your part makes the rest of your procedures suspect. I still enjoyed the video though.

Gotta do two of these tomorrow on an 06 accord. Good video!
