Wife hears noise once and a while, dealer assessed at the recent 60K service that the front right outer CV was failing. 2017 Subaru Crosstrek w/ CVT Question. Are any of the aftermarket axle+CV assemblies reliable? The Job looks easy enough if you separate the lower ball joint - about 1 hour Dealer wants $680- I can get aftermarket axle assemblies for about $100. The Subaru part goes for $400- (!) Anybody here have aftermarket front CV +axle replacement stories to share ? Thanks, Ken p.s: I have to run out for a couple hours, be back around 4:30 PM EST.
