    Well on my way back up north and I noticed that there is oil all over the passenger side from the cv. I am headin 11hrs north, is this something I need to get replaced now or can it wait? I imagine it has to now, but I am hoping it doesn't

    I would get it done now after because that 11 hr trip the cv axel will be shot and the repair will be alot more

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I think periodically greasing it should get ya home... as long as there isnt rain/snow in the forecast to contaminate it.

    I am assuming it is the cv, I can't find a hole on the boot but there is oil slung everywhere, looks like a thread I saw a while ago, what kind of grease?

    If it's just a pin hole in the boot you'll be fine for the drive. Worry about it once you're back home and can replace the boot completely.

    FYI, a replacement CV half shaft assembly, ready to install, is $67 plus shipping from Rock Auto after the core return.

    http://www.rockauto.com

    Can't beat the price and they're good. I picked one up awhile back to scavenge some parts and it's a nice piece that makes replacing just the boots more of a hassle than it's worth. Replace the whole shaft and save yourself the time and rags.

    Killer deal!

    Yeah, I no longer take a whole lot of pride in the time it takes for me to tear down the front end on the truck. Would have been more impressive if I didn't have to do it so many times. :eek:

    Went to pep boys, got some cv grease and hose repair tape, it was only a tiny hole, so in order to get grease in I had to make it bigger so hopefully this holds up

    Ok, so is it possible to just pull the axles off and cap them so I can make the trip home?

    Dismantling the inner CV is a piece of cake but that outer CV required a 40 tons of pressure to pop the stub shaft out of the CV cage. That was after cutting up the axle shaft itself to allow me to rotate the CV cage enough to pop out the bearings so I could remove the cage and get it in the press.

    With the larger hole in the boot it's time to accept that you're replacing the whole axle when you get home and hit the road.

    Why don't you use some of that tape you bought to wrap it again. Then wrap duck tape over that. Might hold better.

    Ya, yours is the one I saw, so just wrap it and head home and if it holds it holds? I know I'll need new axles, I have a guy that can help me at home, no big deal
