Titan 4x4: I have a 2006 Nissan Titan 4x4. I have grinding

Customer Question

I have a 2006 Nissan Titan 4x4. I have grinding noise coming from the front differential during high speed. I was told repair of the differential could be very expensive. Can I just disconnect the front wheels by removing the constant velocity joint and cutting off the front axles?

Hi there. This is Chris and I am one of the techs here.You don't want to just remove the front CV axle because then the wheel bearings will not have anything to ride on and will fail almost immediately. The only way to remove the front axle is to replace the front knuckles and hub assemblies with that of a 2WD drive truck.

You can just bearly see in the picture of the hub assembly that there are splines when the CV shaft slides into. This gives the hub bearings support from the inside to carry the weight of the vehicle.
