CV Joint Hell

I replaced my half shafts as my passenger side boot tore. I bought Advaced Auto half shafts for $75 new, not remanufactered with a life time warrenty. Installed them myself along with new rotors, pads and brake lines. Finished up tonight and went for a test drive and the drivers side boot near the wheel has pulled free of the halft shaft. grease all over.

So tomarow I will be visiting advanced auto to see how they want to work the warranty. I like working on my truck, but it gets to a point where its not fun anymore. Well after this I will be good at changing these things so if anyone in Phoenix needs help doing this I am your man.

No it was seated right. I heard the pop when installing it and gave a couple of tugs to be sure. The boot pulled free from the half shaft. The clamp on the boot was not tight from the manufacturer.
