CV joint (1/2 shaft) question

Is there any way to tell when these are out if they should be replaced? I'm going to clean them out, regrease with Swepco CV grease, repaint shafts adn replace the boots and retainers but wonder about the joints themselves..

Got all four T Bars out today with no problems, front suspension is on the ground and rear arms are loose and ready to drop. New polybronze, monoballs, and 33/23 torsions going in! Amazing that the originals still have 95% of the coating on them and are still like new!

Thanks!

I just got a response from the 911 Technical board and all you would want to know about CV's is listed in case anyone is interested..

Obvious signs of pitting or discoloration of the races or ball bearings, such as pictured in the following CV maintenance article are a good reason to replace a CV:

Man I used to go through CVs a lot in the day... it may sound funny but we got it down to a science .. clean all the parts with alcohol.. wear gloves so as not to get your body oils on the parts (sounds funny and superstitious but they seemed to last longer when we did this ) ...we used Krytox ...definitely do not get that stuff on your hands.. I am a big fan of Swepco products but am not familiar with their CV grease... Krytox was the stuff to use a few years ago..
