2007 HYundai Azera 3.8 Axle Problem
I had an accident with my 2007 Hyundai Azera 3.8 Limited at the driver's side a couple of weeks ago. The frame bent a little bit from the left side. Took it to bodyshop/mechanic and was straighthened back.
The mechanic adviced me to change the CV axle on the left side due to the CV boot coming off the axle. We bought a used CV axle from the junkyard and everything was fine until 2 days later when I made a wide left trun and I heard a cracking noise. Immediately, I pulled over and AGAIN the CV Boot from the CV axle has popped out of the axle again and up until now when i drive I hear a cracking noise when turning to the left. Even without checking the car again, the mechanic is still sauggesting its the axle I bought that I should buy another one

Please any idea of what I can do please. I've spend alot on this....Any effort will be appreciated

N:B - we also changed the hub in the process....before this problem occured

Here is the picture of how it looks now

RE: 2007 HYundai Azera 3.8 Axle Problem
Here's what I would do...

First figure out if that side is able to turn too far either from something still being bent or the alignment being off, or a steering stop that's damaged. You may be able to do this with a tape measure and go to a fixed point underneath, like a frame bolt that's the same on both sides. Compare the right and left at full turn. If all is well there then you might want to purchase a remanufactured half-shaft with a warranty instead of someone's worn out part.
