Cornelius Hughes says:

Hey what torque wrench brand is that you are using?

Henry Froese says:

You don't ever say that you took the strutt out before you take the the cv shaft out .and it takes a 36mm socket for the axle nut.


Yall forgot to include how you took out the strut. Cant take the axle out without removing the strut.

Kenny B says:

Thanks for the video. I have a 2017 Silverado and it is a 36mm nut on the end of my axle. Everything else was the same.

Paul The Painter says:

Two things: Answer the questions in the comments. And why did you replace that CV shaft? Boots weren't even torn.

tyrannosaurus mex says:

explain that the strut was taken off the the CV shaft this video is misleading

ScarabChris says:

I just noticed on this video, 1A Auto is doing the job on a truck with the strut already removed. You can not do this with the strut in place. I just did this job on my Escalade EXT on both sides. Trick is to loosen all three strut nuts on the mount under the hood. Back the nuts off so just a few threads are holding them. Then remove the bolts that attach the strut to the bottom A arm. Now you will have the ability to shift the strut back and allow it to drop in the A arm giving you plenty of space to get the axle out. No worries on the load on the strut. It will not spring out. Very easy to put it back in place. I did the driver side first and it took me 3 hours just because I was trying to avoid messing with the strut. The passenger side took me less than an hour.

Shawn Smith says:

does the strut have to come out in order to take out the cv axle out?
