CV's leaking!!!

I went out today in the snow, had a little fun. Then when I got home I decided to check my CV boots. And they are leaking, well the inner one's are. It's not too bad right now, but I was wondering Is it ok If I let it go for a little while, or should I get them replaced right away?

Really I would hold off for a while. If it is only leaking from there then really there is no rush. Look at Chevy S-10's I don't think there is one of them running around with all of the cv boots intact. I usually only worry when they start clicking.

k, I wont worry... Or try to worry about it. But I think it would be good to put my new high angle one's on before they start clicking. That way I never have to worry about them!

mine just started leaking too. do you have a 2 1/2 inch lift like me? cause a lift like that will cause the inner boots to streatch longer making it leak out the clamps. just two days ago i replaced them and what a job that was. getting them out wasnt too bad but disasembling the axles was kind of hard. but yeah it shouldnt be a problem until you really start to see it slinging all around.

im sure you can go many more miles before you need boots but when you do look into boots from cvunlimited.com. these are high angle cv boots made for lifted trucks. i put them on my truck the only problem was i had to replace the inner clamp they put in the kit cause it didnt fit.
