Mother in laws car, back in action. We were changing the oil this weekend, and we noticed something. Low and behold both CV joint boots are TOASTED, they are cracked in half. The good news is, the axle's still look very well greased. Now my question is, the half shalf itself is $110 per side, and yes both are dead. So thats $220 in parts alone. They also make a $20 repair kit, for the boot. How hard is it to do a repair boot kit? What do you all have to take off in order to replace the damaged boot? Is the repair pretty much good for a great length of time, or am I buying myself a few months here? Can someone please help?
