Product Description


In AWD Volvos, the driveshaft/propeller shaft connects the transmission (via the angle gear) to the rear axle. The rubber boot protecting the driveshaft's front CV joint tends to prematurely crack and tear thanks to the heat of the nearby exhaust downpipe; unlike, say, front axle joints, a failed boot here is so far underneath the car that you may only notice it after it's flung out all of its grease and the joint has started clicking or vibrating.

This kit replaces this troublesome front CV joint of your P1 or P2 Volvo's AWD driveshaft (the rear CV joint is not replaceable). The kit includes everything you need to completely R&R the joint, including the CV joint itself, joint c-clip, boot cover and gaskets, boot clips, joint cover/end cap, and grease.

We recommend double-checking fitment, as some P2 models, such as high output R and V8 models and early V70 AWD/V70 XC models with viscous couplers, use different driveshafts. It's 24 spline, with a 78mm o.d. and with the joint normally marked HLJ75 on the side.

About Aftermarket

Aftermarket parts are a reasonably priced and good alternative to OE products. We often supply aftermarket products in place of OE parts that are no longer available as well. 

Some items will be better than stock or considered an upgrade from the OE design in the aftermarket brand. 

Other items will work as a less expensive alternative to stock. 

We will not sell a product that we do not believe in, so rest assured you are fine with the aftermarket brand in most applications!

If you have any questions, contact our customer service team to advise on the best aftermarket products for your Volvo.
