    Candi(my truck) is leaking on the front right cv assembly. I've seen some of the threads about repair, however, I can't rebuild it til' saturday tho. Should I not drive it, or will be aight goin 50 miles? Basically don't want to make it a more expensive repair than it's already gunna be.

    Grease or gear oil? If its grease and its just oozing out of the boot you are fine, replace the boot of CV when you get a chance. For a temporary fix, squeeze the boot clamp with a pair of dikes to make it tighter. If it's gear oil, make sure the diff is at the full level and order a set of seals.
