CV Joint replacement?

I need to get my CV Joints replaced but I have no idea where would be the best place to buy from. Anyone know a site or anything? And also... is the replacement an easy procedure, or should I just take it to a mechanic?

NOTE: I have some basic knowledge when it comes to cars. I would say the closest to a CV Joint replacement I've gotten is a Tie Rod End replacement.

If you're going to replace the CV joints on both axles, you're better off just buying the entire axles instead. It may cost a little bit more, but its worth the time and money.

Alright, thanks for the heads up on that. So about how much would it run me to replace the axle? Also... where can I purchase the parts?

I really have NO idea where to look for this. I've found some stuff online but it's all separate parts. Is there a way to get it all together? If not, can you please help me out and list all the parts that I have to buy?

*is a noob* <_<

Napa has lifetime warranty on theirs.

Also, this site: http://www.raxles.com/

They're about double the price of Napa or local auto parts store ones, but supposedly they are of much higher quality

autozone here...

their tolerances are a little off so i have to change the drivers side almost every 2 years (it has some play on that side) but no leaking.

not that hard, if you are a diy person, buy a helms

I can't vouch for their quality, but they have fantastic pricing.

Most local auto parts stores carry axles. Other than the axle itself, you'll need 2 cotter pins for when you take them out from the lower ball joint and 2 axle nuts (if they didn't come w/ the axles).
