I have a 2002 sporty 500 HO and the front LH CV was making popping noise so I tore it apart and of course the CV was dry. Upon further inspection, I noticed that the CV was rubbing the inside of the strut. Someone had put shims in behind the inside strut bearing at sometime (found one still there and bunch of mangled pieces between the seal and bearing) to try and fix this - I think. I have bought a whole new shaft and am going to replace the strut bearings and seal as well. My question is should I be concerned about the rubbing or just see what happens after the new parts are installed? I will try and post pics tonite to clarify more. Thanks.
