I could really use some help with this!! So here's the deal, I've got a 05 Tacoma access cab trdsport 4wd with revtek leveling kit (on the truck when I bought it).
A while back my passenger cv boot needed replacing so my mechanic decides to replace the whole axle assembly all in one boots and all. I get it home check out the new boot and noticed the number of ribs on the inner and outer boots didnt match the number of ribs on my driver side (factory toyota axle) boots I figured mister mechanic knew what he was doing....I'm afraid I was wrong in doing so.
6 weeks go by I check the axle/boots it's got a hole in the outer boot, take it back replaced whole assembly again, this axle's boot ribs again did not match the driver side and again only 5 weeks later a hole in the outer boot.
Third axle assembly is put on and again the boot ribs not matching driver side at this point I'm on axle assembly #3 and frustrated so I ask about the number of ribs he says it should be fine....3 weeks later hole in outer boot and slow watery/greasy leak where the axle meets the transfer case (Clearly I'm no mechanic so sorry if that isn't what the axle goes into)
Forth axle is put in still leaking watery/greasy fluid from where the axle meets the transfer case only this time number of ribs on both boots match my driver side (factory Toyota one). Leak wasn't subsiding so took it back he said it didn't look like there was a seal where their should be he will order another whole new assembly only this time he tells me he thinks all of this trouble is because it's lifted mind you I don't wheel my truck what so every! So now he is having an axle custom made that is 1/2 inch longer than stock axle because he says my lift is causing the problem?!?
I'm no genius but there is no way a leveling lift could be causing this madness. Any ideas on this?!? Thanks for reading all of that nonsense and thanks for your help!!
