We were told the left CV boot is leaking. Is this a critical repair? We will be pulling a boat with this vehicle soon and wonder if we should get the repair done before we leave on vacation. Can just the boot be replaced and not the whole axle?
Linda in the case of a leaking boot....yes this repair should be made before a heavy haul or an extended vacation. If you have ability to fix it now I recommend doing so before you may find yourself in a bind later.
