Yeah, if anyone wants to help me change a CV boot.. I would appreciate it. I have never done it before, and I know it's a grueling process. Just PM me with details if you wanna (not that anyone would).

Why don't you just buy a whole new half shaft. Trade your bad one for it, and your golden. It's fairly straight forward/ easy.

I feel like such a n00b, but where would I get one, and then how would I install it? I don't even know what a half-shaft is :(.

u can go to any autoparts store (autozone, etc). I paid 100 for a new half shaft. And a half shaft is just the "axle" up front. Its called a half shaft because its only half, since its goes into the tranny, thus its kinda like half a complete shaft, lol, i dunno how else to explain it. Just tell tehm you need a new cv joint, they'll know what your talking about too probably.

so I get it, it connects to the tranny and then to the hub... right? Okay so this comes with a new CV boot and everything? Because I don't need a new joint, just the boot. And when I think about it... what's gonna be so much easier with this?

Yes just get this. It comes with the new cv boot, joint, etc. Just pull the old one out, and put this in it's place. It's fairly easy for sure.

I'm in lombard. It's like 20 miles West, I think. I'm planning on doing this next weekend because thats when my paycheck will arrive. I would like someone to help me, I'm going to try and get a hold of this other kid I know from Lombard, but that's not promising. If anybody wants to help please let me know -- if Easter is a problem, I can postpone to the following weekend.
