Cv joint boots

So one thing at the time it's turning into everything at once.
While I'm waiting for some parts I removed the cv axle and while I thought this is gr better side both cv joint boots are gone.
I will clean and replace.

Is there diy somewhere with pics (the bearings are a puzzle for sure)?
Also does it matter which side is inner\outer, left or right?

What are the signs of worn cv joints?
I noticed the car will jerk back and forth when not under load.
Is that cv joint problem indication or clutch problem?
Thank you.

once you clean em up you will know

What I am finding is new CV boots just don't last as they are synthetic these days. a lot of the project is intuitive, you will figure it out, just take pics before and after.

make sure you wear clothes you can throw out after.

just pa attention to the washer behind the snap ring and look at the outside of the CV joint, sometimes it has a ring around one edge, just put it back the same way

Read this thread but more importantly the hyperlink in Grady’s first post. There’s an incredibly informative 21 page thread on this topic. Get to know it. Good luck!

Understanding what you are doing will help immensely:

This job is a 3 bananna job, its mostly grimy, greasy, gopher guts messy. Read the above, not for scare purposes, but to insure you only do it once. I didn't and got to do it twice, after a flatbed return home.

Those look nasty. You can buy the shaft with CV's and boots for not that much money. I hated doing the CV boots as they always slid off over time. I glued them finally but it was a jerry rig. The pre assembled is the way I would go.
