Re: New WJ

Well done, great deal! Are you saying that the rubber boots are torn or are the CV joints themselves are knackered? I've changed both my boots that had split and it's not too bad a job, just seems a bit extreme to change shafts for a bit of rubber?

Changing shafts isnt a bad job either...just take off the hub and slide the axle out and replace. I dont know how long the boot has been ripped so I figured I would change the shafts. 120 bucks for both shafts shipped.

Re: New WJ

I see what you mean and I agree that at that price, it's hardly worth the risk of only changing the boots. In my case, I changed them as soon as I spotted the split, before the grease had vacated and all the road crap had invaded the joint.
Good Luck!
