Checked boots about a year ago, CV boots were fine, but on recent inspection both boots began leaking. I had them both replaced. At a very reasonable cost

Right boot is torn. Dealer suggest replacing with a rebuilt half shaft as it's not much more than a boot only replacement. $235 + tax for the one side.

Both of the inner CV boots were leaking grease. They were not torn, just old and the rubber was beginning to fail. Had the Ford dealer replace just the boots and the cost was $260. A little pricey, but everything costs more in Germany having to do with cars. I did not think that the price was out of line considering they had to remove the axles to change the boots.

Keith seems to be a straight shooter. He is nice and for some reason doesn't feel he needs to replace everything under your hood. He has a nice shop at his house so you aren't paying for a huge overhead unlike the big shops on some busy street corner. He just switched out my timing belt and will be doing my CV axle.

I purchased a split quick boot from Advance Auto for 20.00 it wasn't worth it.It was a split boot that is designed to be glued together (yea right)it didn't hold.The company that makes it, is Dorman and they also offer some that bolt together but not for my truck (2002 GMC Sonoma 4x4)you'll be better off buying the axle assembly with the boots already in place the cost is $70.00 plus $50.00 the neighborhood mechanic is charging me to change it.

I did this myself. There are plenty of tutorials online for this relatively simple repair. My VW Bus is rear-wheel drive, making things even easier. If you're comfortable with changing your own transmission fluid, you can definitely do this yourself.

Have to replace the halfshaft since nobody really actually replaces the cv boot itself. I had the driver side done. The part was about 100 and labor was another 125. This is the second one I've done on my 1997 accord and the cost was the same a few years ago for the other side.

Replacing Axle
Amount: $50.00

Usually a legit business will charge you $200-300 for part and labor in replacing an axle regardless of passenger or driver side. If done right, the job takes no more than 30 minutes unless your car is just complex to remove the axle nut, knuckle and pull out and having transmission oil on the side if spillage occurs. If you buy the part yourself new or rebuilt and have a trusted neighborhood mechanic put it on. No more than $50 bucks with the part you bring to him or her. You may or may not need a front end alignment afterwards, but still relatively cheap considering how these auto business tack on cost especially from anyone who is not of car knowledge. If it is a budget thing, replace the part now and do an alignment next two pay periods. You car will hold up just fine
