CVO 2/19/2012How bad is the CV joints ? If there is no physical damaged beside it was only running out of the CV joint grease due to a broken boot. You could use the split boot ( from O'Reilly auto pats stores, good prices ) and reseal it the CV joints.
Apply a RTV sealer through the boot seam to waterproof the boot prior to lock it with the tiny nuts and bolts.
See this instructions to perform the repair.
Note: in the worst case scenario, a CV joint was required to replace, replacing the halfshalf, it may be more practical and it does cost $60.00 dollars ( in my opinion ).
HouseCallAuto 2/19/2012Don't ever try to replace just the CV boot. NEVER EVER. Replace the drive axle.
Jay 2/26/2012I replaced the entire half shafts on mine. That was the recommended treatment rather than trying to replace the CV joints. Was it easy? No, it was a bitch, but I got it done. There are special tools needed along the way. you can look it up on Google: http://www.google.com/search
Note, when I started this project I read horror stories about trying to remove the old axels, but I did not have that issue. They just popped right out after I removed the bolts ... well, they needed a little tug.
