    Default CV Joint on axle shaft

    The inners on my car have some play, not anything I am concerned about. Should I re-grease them and see how it goes or replace? Doesn't look like any grease leaked and the boots are fine. Never had to do this and the car has only 243K so I think this is a premature failure or just a maintenance re-grease procedure.

    Hopefully mine are not worn bad. I get no noise except a little play. Will inspect when I get in there though. McMaster, been the go to since forever, thanks for the reminder.
