Default How much for new CV Boots on 96 Honda Accord?

How much should I expect it to cost to replace all four CV Boots on a 96 Honda Accord?It is better to get refurbished axles or just replace the boots? And what's the cost difference between these? Thanks in advance.

CV boots cost on average 12 to 16 dollars each and cv shafts start at 49 to about 69 dollars with exchange. The difference is when a boot rips, all the grease comes out, and the cv bearings get debri or the grease washes out with water from puddles and may damage the bearings. CV boot kits don't replace the bearings just the boot and grease. Depending on the shop, I have seen labor running about 75 per side for replacement.

The boots only cost like under $20 each but it's labor intensive trust me I've changed mines but if you have a mechanic do it your looking at a big bill. Even if you buy new or refurbished axles it's still gonna cost the same if you dont install it yourself.

Your car is ten years old and if an average of 15,000 miles per year is accurate, you might have 150,000 miles on it... it's not time for new boots, it is time for axles! The boot replacement will cost you more in the long run as pretty soon you will start hearing the ticking associated with worn out CV joints. Replacement axles come with both the inboard and outboard bearings. A cheap repair of the boot only might consist of a split boot which I think are junk. If you put on a factory replacement boot, the axle will have to be removed anyway so you migh as well replace it. I would bet you could find a shop that would do the whole thing for $500 including the cost of parts but doing it yourself will still subtract a good $200 from your pocket. Talk to Auto Zone or Napa Auto Parts and see what they say. Sure they will sell you parts but I'll bet they steer you right with an axle replacement. You can save some cost by replacing only the axle with the damaged boot and doing the others when their boots fail. They will mind you... just give them time and mileage!Good luck!
