Hi John. re leaking C.V. boot.
I replaced the entire axil half shaft assembly on my car.
Once the car is jacked up and the old axil is removed i
can replace with a new axil in about 15 seconds. It takes about 1/2 to 3/4 hour to put in a boot kit. It's not worth my time. Calipers,axils,wheel cylinders, E.C.Ms, programers, carbs,A.C. compressors, alternaters, and most other things are replaced. All can be repaired including the E.C.M. Yes i had to repair them. The opti coupler or the E-E- prom was the only thing that went wrong and that
was almost always customer owned fault. They blew it up.
Prime example. The G.M. 6.5 turbo diesle. Everyone replaces
the injector pump. WRONG. There is a factory fault with that system and it is not the pump. Actually as i reread
my post the G.M. diesle has nothing to do with axils. Sorry
about that. Got off topic. Anyway, 3/4 hour for a boot kit
or 15 seconds to replace the axil. You be the judge.
