Check your boots!
 
My jeep is in the shop. I was randomly checking for leaks this past weekend and noticed a front axle boot was saturated....Turns out that in order to get a new boot, the whole axle needs to be replaced. Jeep has 27,000 miles on it...hopefully this is not a sign of maintenance issues to come. Thank god for warranties

maybe its a good idea to have an extended warranty. I'd hate to have to pay for that once the warranty ran out

Yeah, last time I replaced just the boot was on a '74 Benz.

Had my GC in for a oil change yesterday and inspected the boots. No problems at 19000 miles.

i had a boot replaced after a mechanic punctured it. it lasted about 30 miles before it started spewing grease all over. unless they were installed correctly in a factory, they will never fit tight enough so it is far easier to replace the whole axle
