What the hell is that


Okay so I slid under my truck today to change the oil and I noticed what seems to be alot of grease sprayed all over the front passenger side suspension. Don't know where it's coming from but it's sprayed all over the place.

Any ideas?

Looks like your CV joint exploded the grease everywhere, you'll need to replace the joint. Do you see a tear in the CV boot anywhere?

got curious and took some shit apart this afternoon. As far as I can tell it's just a rip in my CV boot. Took it up to Toyota to get a new boot and the lady asked me why I wanted to fix it myself since it was still under warranty. I said "it's under warranty? hell yeah u can fix it!"

Got an appoinment Wednesday to drop it off and get it fixed. I also asked her if she would check into the TSB rear shock whatchacallit...

I was just surpised to know it was still under warranty after I did my lift. I love Toyota.

one way to keep this from happening is to get a diff drop kit that lowers your diff to releve the stress on your cv's
i belive pure-performance.biz and total chaos.com offer them.....just a thought!
