Default Price for CV bucket replacement?

So I've been getting vibrations upon heavy acceleration and from what I've researched it seems the driver side CV bucket has worn out; my car is lowered.

I don't have have the tools and don't want to spend days trying to do this myself and would rather pay someone to do it. Is there a ball park price for the labor and cost of the CV bucket replacement so I can get a sense I'm not getting overcharged? Would I only replace the driver side? And does anyone know any reputable shops in the Charleston SC area that I can trust?

thanks in advance.

It will be expensive either way, check out Autometrics, they're a Porsche shop mainly but have done alignments for me. You're better off swapping them yourself, but if you have the money to spend, hit them up...good luck.

I believe ballade sells buckets for the OEM S2000 axles.

Id expect to pay $200-$400 for cup swap. I do work on the side and charge $200 for cup swap + full reboot. I prefer to only use the OEM Honda boot kits. The boot kit is $25~ per boot from AFHKParts.com and includes everything required to complete the job.

Great job spreading misinformation. You CAN buy them alone. After speaking with PuddyDaddy, he actually told me that there is the option to rebuild them by buying the buckets through Honda, but it is quite expensive. He rebuilds axles as well last time we spoke.

Honda part # 42320-S2A-310 (Inboard joint)

I actually found that part online before making the thread.

But it seems swapping the buckets will be just as good of choice? I read some old s2ki forum post saying swapping is just a short temporary fix so I thought getting new ones would be better.

Swapping them will fix the issue, but hey may wear out again.

But, won't axle spacers help to prevent this when your car is lowered?

No, nothing "prevents" it from happening, the axle spacers only move where the bearings are riding against on the bucket so the spacers do similar to what swapping buckets does, they will still end up wearing out. Spacers will give you more time until you have to pony up the money for new buckets.

If I get new buckets, will I only need to replace the driver side to get rid of the vibrations?
