During the last 210,000 miles on the only front wheel drive car I've owned, I've had the replace the CV joints twice. Now they've just started the old, familiar song when I turn left. But I've been hoping that I'll just drive it till the Solstice comes out and never have to worry about them again. And then I read this! Tell me it's a whole different thing on rear wheel drive and they won't need to be replaced more often than that darned timing belt. Tell me I won't have to make the choice of paying $200 to get a torn boot replaced or $400 later to replace the CV. Say it ain't so!You were seeing the rear differential and independent rear suspension. The axles are attached to the diff with CV joints Corvette style. Solstice is rear drive so it has driveline components at the back of the car.
