While adding a truss on the front axle of my 2018 JLU Sport S over the weekend. Found a bad cv axle. (Drivers side) I am not finding too many options for replacing it without breaking the bank. Any vendors you recommend? Have you replaced any front cv's on this axle? Any and all input welcome. Times are hard and money is always tight. All suggestions welcome. If you have replaced yours. Do you still have your old one? I have a pic of it posted here. Thanks Y'all.

Thank you so much for the recommendations. I ended up going with these. Decided to do FAD delete.

You’ll be happy with your choice. I was going to upgrade to my front axles next week to a chromoly set and after a ton of research decided on Yukon. They are a great choice.

I’d still go that route if I didn’t do what I did.

It is doing very well. Ended up putting some Yukon shifts in with fad delete. It’s doing very good on and off the trails.

You might want to re-word your title and post. First, you don’t have CV axles, you’ve got traditional u-joints. Second, you didn’t bend the axle, you twisted the splines. I was wondering what happened until I saw the pics, just twisted splines. Not to discount that you needed to swap it out, but your wording is confusing.

BTW, the Artec truss is a wonderful piece of engineering. It’s a much needed piece of metal/strength addition for our FAD equipped axles. Haven’t heard of an axle housing bending or breaking with the truss installed.
