I think it was Stardog some time ago posted pictures of changing the outer joint. Bruises a centimeter deep from the hammer blows. Add to that that none of the aftermarket joints are any good and you wonder why we always only use second hand complete assemblys

That was quiet a few years ago I don't know if they are still on the site or not.
If I remember right it was when I rebuilt the whole front end of the Mu bushes ball joints steering box ect.

hmm.. Thanks.. And if I don´t succeed, what then? Is that complete axle with both cv-s?
I`ve tried today without anything happens :(

if you have a new cv joint just, twist the cv till the balls fall out take the outside cup off and cut the inner part off the axle, dont cut the axle though

This job increased a lot.. I´m sure how to do, I´m not convinced that it is cv is broken, when I drive so one wheel is slipping, it comes BAD noise from the hub/joint (?). First I thougt is was the automatic free wheel, I have loosen that, clean and tested again, same noise, but it seams working when I lift the wheel and turn around. Therefore I go for the cv joint.. but I don´t see any problem, no wear and tear, is that normal or should I find a faulty cv just by looking? I can still back of an put the part back again, but than I´m on square one again. The new cv I have is a aftermarket joint :(

money is still on the auto hub. They can be notorious for this. A good time to upgrade to manuals. Auto hubs also make it hard to test. Lift the wheel turn the cv by hand with the wheel untill the hub locks then turn in the same direction

There is a thread on Isuzu trooper owners UK with photos that show you the easy way to change boots by un doing the bottom ball joints 4 bolts that's attached to the lower arm.

On the old bighorn and the new one I had to do that but on the wizard I could get it apart after just removing the top joint and tie rod. Much easier as you dont have the hub assembly falling into your lap

Gidday

My 97 wizard needs a outer cv boot, I will do both.
is there a particular brand you'd suggest.

Don't buy the NZ supercheap CV382 boots as the lip diameter as about 3-5mm too big on the large dia and 2-3 mm on the small.

the standard type kits are much the same but dont get the lightweight stretchy boots which they say can be fitted without dismantalling. You need a special tool to do that and they do not stand up to foreign objects stabbing them. Grease is included in the boot kit.

https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-pa ... 738898.htm have just done both inner and outer boots on left side. about 20minutes whole job. not sure how well they will hold under extreme off roading. but for price and time saved. idea to have a spare in your tool box.

if using off road they will not last. however the idea of a spare is tempting

Was able to replace 4 front cv boots by disconnectng steering tie rod and bottom joint's 4 bolts, so only needed to separate the steering ball joint.
