    RE: More Fantasy Questions

    anyone had experience doing this before?

    i just want to replace the boot around the joint. am i trying to bite off more than i can chew? joint is still fine, boot is torn, i have another one, but to do this i know i have to remove the old one, clean the joint, re-grease it, and then put the new boot on, am i missing something? and if i've never done it before, is this not a good idea to try? thanks in advance.

    RE: Shocks for the money

    What type of jeep is this on? ZJ?

    I'm not familiar with any type of replacement boots. Have you considered an upgrade to ujoint axleshafts?

    its on my 96 zj, its the front driveshaft. the rear of the driveshaft has a u-joint into the t-case, and the front has cv into the axle, switching over to u-joints is more than i'm looking to spend right now.

    I would think you'd be fine if you can make a replacement boot work, as long as there's no slop in the CV joint or vibes.

    Re: Hey Greenreaper!!!!

    junkyard said they'd replace the part at no extra cost, something tells me this is the way to go....
