my fun with CV boots

well got around to changing out the pass side outer boot..
it went rather smoothly..
got stuck on the retaining clip..
thanks Dip for your help!!

ran into a couple of problems that need to be addressed..
chunks takien outa my brake line...
and my sway end link was stripped completly....
so i went onto eeuroparts and spend $80..
mind you the end link was only $19
heheheh

Sheesh, what a mess! I had one with a small tear about as wide as a dime in my last car and it flung almost as much grease around inside the wheel as you got there.

That looks like a lovely mess...I love it when CVs explode! Just a little note, next time make sure your brake line isn't doing a "loopdie" thats probably why there's shit missing from it, yikes!

Oh....hahaha! I was wondering how it would have made a loop like that!

I also will be doing stainless lines soon on either one or both of my cars, I am all about getting the brakes as good as they can be with the stock claipers and rotors.
