nrb1225...my friend I am going to make the call...sorry man but your other one is in pre-failure mode...insist on replacement….only my opinion but here's my reasoning...
1) Yellow Arrows
……I cannot see any thin outer edge lip of the boot that is clearly visible in Dan_JGC's post repair pic and my non-repaired pic. His pic is consistent with everyone else’s post repair pics.
2) Red Arrows
……the clamp that is “failing” due to looseness….yours has a shadow being cast on left edge of clamp and even looks loose..other 2 look tight/seated.
3) Blue Arrow
….that “wet” rust on yours is grease on the rust…should be 0.0 grease.
I bet if dealer physically inspects that clamp it will be loose. You need to make them check now so they can also order that axle assembly. Sorry man, bet I ‘m right.
