1998 honda passport front axles
      #524459 - 05/20/04 11:26 AM

First post, so be kind to me... Wondering how difficult it is to change the front drive axles on a 1998 passport 4WD (which I am told is same vehicle as a Rodeo)... Any special tools? How much (if any) steering linkage comes off? Is the axle nut a bear to loosen/tighten? I have worked on cars for many years, but never dealt with these kind of CV joint axles... I have a HAynes manual, but it is not too clear as it covers 1989-2002 (too broad)... Thanks in advance for any info... Cheers...

Your passport IS identical to the Rodeo. You started with a different warranty and there might be a few "trim" items that are different, but inall of the important ways it is an isuzu rodeo.

I am uncertain what you mean by change axles.

If you mean remove and replace with another Isuzu 10 bolt. This can be a somewhat arduous process but entirely possible by a competent weekend warrior.

The nice thing is that the differential has a third member design. So you could swap anything in if somebody else had already built it.

However, there are no other IFS options that will fit in your Passport. The only other axle options are to remove all of the existing IFS (independent front suspension components) and put a normal straight/solid axle underneath under your choice of suspension. Generally on the board this process is called SAS or solid/straight axle swap.

I hope this somewhat answers your question.

The outer CV joint boots on the front (both sides) are trashed, and rather than remove the axles and replace just the boots, I figure I might as well replace the entire axle/CV joint assemblies. This is not to change to something different, just replace with the same... I assume that the thing I am changing includes both an inner and outer CV joint on a shaft, but I am not really sure...

ahh now I understand what you mean.

You do not want to replace the entire CV axle for torn boots.

This is a very arduous process.

This has been discussed several times, but the gist of it is that following the instructions on one of the 4x4wire pages about replacing CV boots is the way to go. You can slip out the CV at the upper joint and just replace the boots instead of the entire shaft. I have done this a couple times it isnt that hard and its about a two to three hour process. The only difficult thing is getting those bands back on the upper cv joints. (hard to get a banding clamp in there).

Sorry I misread your question. Good luck.
