    depends if you hit it or not. mine was fine until i gashed it open and then it started leakin like a bitch. if you didnt hit it or there are no gashes i would be a little suspect to something else.

    according to the urban dictionary its "sieve", and now that i have used this term for forever, i now know that its a strainer.

    You mean the boot? There shouldn't be any fluid in the boot. It is just to keep dust out.

    nope it was where the pinion met the gears. that metal box which held it all in was all torn up after i hit it on some rocks not quite sure how it got passed everything else.
