i dont know much about the suspension part of the car, but i suppose that if i hear a lot of sqeaky noise from the back it is time to replace the CV joints?

or is just adding the grease necessary?

i guess if the joints fail, the axels may get damaged?

where to get cheap OEM joints then?

thanks.

It could be the shock mounts. Mark's car was squeaking and they were the problem.

I would look at the shocks, shock mouts, and rear bushings before you replace axles. The BMW rear axles hardly ever go bad.

yeah, i will try looking at the shock mounts, thats probably the problem. i guess i translated the cv joints from my language to english wrong

is it easy to replace just the shock mounts? do you need to do any alignment afterwards?? thanks
