    I have the exact same problem, does this need to be replaced?

    is the boot ripped or is it leaking around the clamp?

    if the boot is ripped, replace the whole thing, if the clamp is leaking just throw a hose clamp on it.

    Do I put a hose clamp over the clamp that's already on it?

    no, cut that one off. keep in mind this fix probably won't last all that long.

    Some lift, some armor, some scratches.. check out the build!
    The pic above is mine, taken a few months ago. After further inspection I'm not sure it was a leak at all. I simply cleaned it all up really well and there has been zero grease in that spot since. (Hopefully there's some grease still left inside the boot! :eek:)

    Id suggest you clean it up well, THEN look for the leak before you go replacin stuff.

    Just to throw it out there. .

    Both Cv's on my truck were blown (3 boots total) and absolutely no grease left. Original Cv's with 250,000 before being replaced. They had been driven over 80,000 with boots blown by the previous owner and another 40,000 by myself before I finally replaced them just out of prevention. Absolutely no problems out of them.

    If you aren't going to be in the sand every weekend or offroad on a constant basis I would leave them be.

    That's what I like to hear, thanks fellas.

    TIPICOTACO, just out of curiosity, did you notice the grease soon after a lift was installed?

    NO, its got stock suspension. I noticed the grease when I went to re-paint the skid plate shortly after I bought the truck.

    If I did want to re-fill some of the grease that has come out of my boot do to a missing clamp... Does anybody know what kind of grease that I would need to use?

    Thanks
