Sister cars 😁😁😁

I know this might be a ridiculous question, but I was wondering if I can put parts from a 2004 Hyundai Accent in my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe??

It depends on the part.

If you want to figure it out, go to https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/,
and enter the different information.

If the part numbers are the same, the parts can be swapped.

Why thank you

And may I ask your opinion on split boot CV joint kits as opposed to just a CV joint??

My opinion is, don’t waste your time on a split-boot.

Replace the axle shaft.

The year is the same, but one is their smallest car the other is their largest suv so do as Tester suggested but don’t get your hopes up.

A Kia Sorento would be a lot closer to your Santa Fe. I think they used the same engine in 2004, and maybe the same transmission.
