Velocity joints for suzuki's

Postby chris1388 » December 21st, 2011, 8:53 pm

Hey guys I just got back from getting my velocity joints changed on my ignis sport. The man I went by lives in couva, he works out of his own garage.....he imports joints for ALL sorts of vehicles....once he knows the spline count on the inner and outer of your joint he can get a replacement joint that will work. The joints are from the USA.

I highly recommend this guy, he took his time and did really professional work. It seemed as if he were working on his own personal car. He charged me $1500.00. And for that I got:

Two brand new velocity joints
Two brand new boot rubbers for the joints
He installed the joint and supplied all the grease
He even has proper metal clamps that he puts on the boot rubbers....not like them tie wrap things most people put.

So to any of you zuki guys that need joints, and can't afford the price of an entire driveshaft from LSM (because that is what they sell....they don't just sell the CV joint, called it was $6000 a SIDE!!!) or don't want the cheap Taiwanese ones ,I highly recommend this guy I was very pleased with the quality of his work. Give him a call.

yep...thats cuz they sell the entire driveshaft not just the joint. Still that is ridiculous in my opinion. This guy has joints for the lianna, call him.

Yea well dex is really the best place to learn it. Check the solodex forum for the calender of events and try to attend the "driving schools" these are practice events where you can come and learn the car and get some tips on driving.
