Though when I need something now being able to search the local stores' inventory online is really handy and saves a great deal of time.

If the CV is leaking just needs a new boot they usually aren't too terribly hard to replace and a rebuild kit is a small fraction of the price of a new/rebuild axle.
Thanks. I see their price is a bit better than the 100 for both half axles I paid Autozone (when core charge is refunded). But I got it right away and didn't have to pay shipping. Still, good to know another recommended site.

I chose to replace the half-axles because I have a lot of bearing noise and wheel drag in the front wheels. I'll get the job done during Thanksgiving weekend, without bad luck in weather or other unforeseen difficulties.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Agreed. At $50 each, you may as well consider them consumables. That's cheaper than a single tire!

There are various different places from where you can get parts of your choice at the reasonable price. However, you need to do a bit of research in this regard. These days, more and more people are opting for used parts because they are available in wide range of variety and they also complement your pocket. So, as you are also looking for reasonable price parts, so I will also suggest you to go for the same. Two of my friends own Honda Accord and whenever they require any parts for the same they prefer automotix.net because this dealer offer OEM certified parts with proper warranty.
