    Default CV Joint preventive maintenance suggestions Civic 97 ?

    My cars passenger side wheel was making clicking noise. Took it to the mechanic turned out to be a bad cv joint. The boot was torn. The boot of the other cv joint was also torn. Got it replaced. Had to replace the cv joint that was clicking. Got a kabli for 2200. Total job costed 4000. Including a breather box o ring change labour. The other boot got damaged just within 6 months but wasnt making noise.
    What can I do to prevent that from happening again.

    Does driving style lead to such damage as I take sharp n short turns on u turns, do zig zag above 60 km coz of kichri trafic, or its the suspension system to blame.
    Past cant be brought back ..but future can be made even better than the Past..if one wants to.. ....
