1991 Sentra SER cv joints

I am replacing the cv axles on my 91 Sentra SER for the first time, and wondered if any other parts should be replaced while we have it apart. The car has 67k original miles on it, which is an accurate figure as I'm the original owner. Thanks!!

Be very careful installing the new axles in trans, VERY common to slightly nick or cut a seal edge to leak fluid when doing it. Also, be sure to run the outer axle nut up to the full service manual torque number or you wreck the wheel bearing quick. Many brands will have that nut changing after only one use, but some designs can be reused so long as you watch the torque runup, you will feel the nut giving if it will not hold the full number again.

Rather odd to me to be changing axles that quick........Most of the world teaches that as soon as they begin to click you change them but I never do until the axle clicking gets really bad. It's simply not a problem when the clicking occurs way out at steering limit as the car is rarely operated there.
