So on my way home from the parental units house, I noticed smoke coming out of the hood scoop. I pulled over and saw smoke coming from the turbo and an oily substance on the exhaust. I was beyond pissed thinking my turbo had just eatin itself.
Limped home (was only a mile), and upon closer inspection with a flash light, my pass side inner CV boot has a tear and the oily substance was melted axle grease.
So the question is:
Replace the boot or the whole axle?
My car has 79k miles.
Autozone lifetime axle is $69 + core
Boot alone is $20
What I know is some CV boots are a complete PITA to change.
What say you club dub?
