Modifying the Front Outer CV Joints

Today we had a pretty exciting and interesting day! Mike took the new CV drive axles that arrived last week and lopped off the outer CV joints in order to retro-fit them into what he needed for the front suspension. First, he drilled a hole into a piece of 4×4 wood so that he could fit the joint ends into it in order to create a steady grip when cutting them in half with the circular saw. It worked perfectly as the wood served as a handle, but also allowed for the joint to rotate easily as he cut around it with the saw. Once both CV joints were successfully cut off, he spray painted them and then attached them to the front wheel hubs. It was pretty impressive. They don’t call him an evil genius for nothing!
