CV Axle clicking

My legend's CV axles recently started clicking. Can I just buy a boot repair kit or do I need to.buy 2 new CV axles? Is there a good "stickie" for this?

Usually once you start hearing clicking it's too late. It's a good idea to check you axle boots for cracks at least once a month.

Ok, I'll just get some new axles. Is there a good "walk through" on here for this?

Where did you buy the axles and how much? I need some new ones too, am a little cautious with the cheaper aftermarket ones. Anyone has any experience with aftermarket axles?

Also here is a video of Ericthecarguy, its not on a legend but a different honda, I think an accord which is very similar:

I cannot post videos yet but put youtube.com in front of it:

I haven't bought them yet. I'm also wondering the same thing. Been looking at Autozone and some other places. Going to look at rockauto too. Would like to find something that's a little more tough then oem. Anyone know anything about this?

I checked partsgeek, and they have axles around 40-60 dollars. Not sure why some require you to return core, and others dont.

The aftermarket axles are known to be problematic on Legends. Most will tell you to get them from the dealer but those are really expensive. Raxles is also know to as a very good replacement part but believe they will only sell you ones if you have OEM cores. Some have had good luck with Napa's, personally I've only replaced a couple and used Cardone A1 new axles and they worked for me but others have said they did NOT work for them. Make sure they can be easily returned if they cause vibrations or noise, so preferably from somewhere local to you.

I was looking at the cardone A1s. There's a Napa store near to me. Does anyone know something about Autozone's brand of axle if they are any good?

I looked on RockAuto and they have Cardone "Select" for $43.79 each. Does anyone have experience with the "Select"? Thinking about going with them and they ship out of Madison which is 30 miles from me so I wouldn't have to wait long.
Also, I looked on Autozone and they offer the Duralast "Gold" for $64.99 each along with a limited lifetime warranty.

The 'Selects' are the new and that is what I used successfully, but as noted some others have found them to not always work without issues. Axles normally click when turning...

So just to be clear, they normally click when worn? Or they always click? Then how would you know when yours are worn out?
