    napa axles suck. They will leak too. Just a temp fix. Look up CVJ high angle boots. Do you need the ECGS Bushing tool too?

    happens in a few of the ecgs assemblies, oil gets trapped in the extender tube and spews out the breather on the top instead of making it back to the case. more common in ones with the spec'd solid spacer

    The NAPA ones are recommended by SDHQ right behind OEM ones, per their cv boot thread which is why I'm gonna go with those. I don't want to go through the hassle of rebuilding the axles.

    with CVJ you send them out. In any case, dont throw away your OEM ones. I will buy one from you. Unless the manual ones are different than auto. And in that case, Im sure @Lots2Learn58 will buy them from you. But I want dibs first

    Oh I'm not throwing them away! I'm keeping both of them, and will rebuild them with new boots. I just want them as trail spares but not as my everyday axles, in case I do a shitty job of rebuilding them.

    Not that I'm aware of. The tool to do the clamps is only $10. You just have to disassemble them which looks messy as hell.

    No, Im still running my OEM ones. But I have an extra that I plan on sending in to get rebuilt.

    I think I read somewhere that you want the inner boot to be the high angle red silicone one, and the outer boot to be the normal one. I cant remember though.

    I'll email them and see what they say. I hadn't heard of them before so if their prices are good, I'd definitely go them over NAPA.

    Hmm all this talk about cv boots and stuff has me wanting to check mine. I'm still dealing with slight vibrations. Granted my wheels for some reason keep throwing weights so that isn't helping me lol

    I think OEM Toyota is like $300 each. A pair of CVJ remans are $300. Napa (not saying they are bad) or other chinese axles are like $120 each. You can get the cheap ones because they have lifetime warranty, but swapping them out can become more of a pain. But you will get the process down. hah!

    do you have takeoff vibes? It wont be the CV then. Its probably your driveline. Might want to check the angles. EDIT: I think there is a recall on driveshafts too. I got some letter from Toyota about it. I wonder if I can get a new one (when mine is aftermarket). My OEM one is needing to be re-tubed.

    Sure! Of course it would be better for me and @Bocsy44 if it is a saterday. But of in my case I am a lot less busy during winter so it can be possible to have a day off. I will wait for Bocsy to reply on this so we can set
