View Full Version : 1997 Buick Century front suspension

The car literally goes thump thump thump so much my wife has named the car thumper. At first I thought it was a bad tire or wheel so I put on a different one on the right front. It is quite prodominant at slow (1-20 mph) and less so at higher speeds. I recalled that when I changed the oil last time I noticed that the boot was all cracked around the CV joint, so I have purchased a new short shaft to replace the right side, does the haynes manual show how to dissassemble and replace this part??

Hi crkibler,

Yes, you'll find the driveaxle removal and installation procedure in Chapter 8 of Haynes manual no. 19010.
