In my experience with my cars, I have learned these terms due to problems with these parts in Tampa and Puerto Rico. This is the term used in the general mechanic vernacular.

steering knuckle, wheel spindle


Explanation:
They are two different things, and each has multiple names. Sorry, but you'll have to try to determine which it is! I cannot tell with my reference, you need to see from your context (if any)!

And they are different; I know cars also.

CV joint...


Explanation:
A universal joint, used especially in front-wheel drive cars that allows power to be transmitted from a transaxle to an axle or from an axle to a wheel even at sharp angles, as when the suspension moves up and down. Also called CV joint.
Luck!

CV joint = junta homocinética


Explanation:
CV joint = junta homocinética.

Used in this area and also in my glossary, this is still another different part. You really need to see a drawing or consult (may not be possible, I know). The term "punta de eje" has two distict translations but neither one is CV joint! I wish I could help more, but I at least don't want to see you steered wrong.

Rear end axle


Explanation:
Greetings from Venezuela. For your information, in my country a "Punta de eje" refers to any of the two rear end axle shafts (as shown in the web reference below), whereas a Constant Velocity Joint is a part related to front-wheel drives and is not referred to as a Punta de Eje, at least not in Venezuela or Colombia. I hope this other viewpoint helps someway.
