Hello all, I am hoping there might be some support for my 04 element that is bleeding cv grease from the front axle. I want to get some OEM units but dealerships locally are asking crazy money ($1200 for an axle on one quote).

I tried majestic Honda (Hondaautomotiveparts), but they only have the driver side in stock (I need passenger, hurray for supply chain issues), and don’t seem to have a ship to Canada option. I also tried hondapartsnetwork and they also don’t ship to Canada, plus they charge about $200 more per axle. At this point I am starting to think that raxles might be my only option but thought I’d check in here before going that route as it would be the same cost/more than the Oem options above.

for fun, here is a shot of my element before biking:

You can also replace just the rubber cv boot and repack the joint with grease. Doesn’t help if the joint is worn but it is an option.

Sadly it’s an aftermarket axle that isn’t up to the task with the lift, so I have been trying to find a good OE replacement. Appreciate the compliment! I have some wrap for it that I am going to try to put on this summer, to make it more dessert tan.

Grab some CVs from TRAKmotive. They make brand new not rebuilt CVs. I have used them for years, they may not last as long as the OEM ones but they will last a few year for sure and they only cost $99 CAD per CV. I have one on my Element, no fitment or installation issues and I think they have a lifetime manufacturer warranty
