    Well, I or ready got boots. I ordered the ones from Downey offroad. There sapposed to be better, more flexible, reliable. Pretty much made for lifted trucks with higher CV angles. But thanks anyways man!

    I finally decided to just wait on the boots until I get my toytec 3" coil lift and new shocks for my truck. That way it can all be done at the same time. :)

    I wouldent wait, thats the thats the crazyist thing Iv ever heard of.... yes its a pain in the ass to change the boots I just did it... But common rule is, if stuff is coming out, stuff can get in. and the last thing you want inside of a CV boot is dirt and or water.!!

    So change it asap.

    thats my 2cents!

    Yeah, I know. I will have them changed as soon as I can. The weather here has been crazy! So I cant really go anywhere, with all the snow and ice. So as soon as conditions get better, I'll defenately get them done.

    Could I try to tighten up the clamp a little and see If it helps the leak. Or will it make it just worse?
