Hey guys,
I have a 93 turbo with LSD. I found out not too long ago that my drivers side inner CV boot (side attached to tranny) has torn and spewed grease on the tranny. On acceleration I can feel a slight vibration from the rubber on the boot flapping about.

I am wondering whether I should order a remanufactured axle from autopart store, or just get a replacement CV boot kit. Has anyone experienced this, what are the pros and cons of a rebuilt axle versus new axle versus CV boot kit.

I'm not sure if the axle is totally useless now due to dust and sand, what are the symptoms of a totaly shot axle/CV.

Thanks!

You can get replacement boots from Toyota. The inner CV joint has to be torn apart to replace the boot, it's kinda a bitch to do, but with perserverance and hard work you can do it. It would also be a good idea to replace the outer boot, since the inner CV joint has to be taken apart to change the outer one too. A rebuilt axle will save you the hassle of all the extra work.
