    So I have punctured my front left outer cv boot. Would that explain the noise/vibe when going faster than 55mph and turning to the left? What are the affects of this? Dealer told me they couldn't cove it because I trimmed the inside plastic of my fenders, to prevent rubbing from 285's...

    They don't want you back as a customer? My left outer had a hole in it, not sure how. Grease everywhere. (post lift) They replaced it at my next free service, no questions.

    If the puncture is fairly new it couldn't be the cause of noise or vibration... yet. The effect is that CV grease will sling out and mud/sand will get in to the joint and it will wear early.

    I can't see how trimming the fender a little could make the boot tear. Take it to another dealer or contact Toyota and get a case started. But be aware they might could say it's not a defect but caused by a road hazard like a tree branch or something else that got tangled in the knuckle area. Good luck.

    It sounds like your lift is too high, causing your puncture as well as binding and rubbing that's causing your other issues while driving.

    Get the truck to a comfortable height for the suspension or prepare to have the other boot blow as well.

    Did you tell the service guys what happened? A single car collision.. sounds like an insurance situation and not a warranty claim.

    Yea but it's 250 bucks to have the cv joint rebuilt, my deductible is 500, it's not really a big deal just wish someone would have seen that problem the first 3 times I brought the truck in and they tried to pass it off on the tires, they are just fuckin lazy to be honest.
