    on a 4wd truck the front wheels are driven by cv axles. the axles have a cv joint which can flex in any directions. around these joints are boots that are made of rubber which can fail. thus leading to grease leaking out and dirt getting in causing a failure

    You don't have CVs so don't worry about it.
