CV Joint Bolt, 8 x 1.25 x 45mm, LOCKING, Type 1, 2, and 3, 8mm 12pt Head, Set of 12 (Does one axle), 8320
Price: $49.95

CV Joint Bolt, 8 x 1.25 x 45mm, LOCKING, Type 1, 2, and 3, 8mm 12pt Head, Set of 12 (Does one axle), 8320 is an incredible product to prevent CV Bolt loosening, which is a common and messy problem! Instead of thread locker, have a true locking fastener! 12pt head is small and gives you a lot of room for the socket, and there is a large flange beneath the head to spread the clamping load. Once the bolts are tight, you simply slip on the locking tab into a location to prevent the bolt from any loosening, then secure it with the included snap ring (small tipped snap ring pliars will be needed).

There is no longer any chance of the bolt loosening or coming off, which can be a major hassle on the road or out on the dunes! This is also a fantastic product for off road cars, where the constant pounding knocks CV Joint Bolts loose regularly!

We sell these in packs of 12 units, which will do 2 CV Joints (One Axle Shaft, both ends). You'll need 2 of these to do one car.
