I agree -- Axles are cheap, and the extra money you may spend for an axle versus boots is WELL worth it for the saved sanity.

I'm physically exhausted, it'* cold (getting colder) and i don't want to spend the rest of my spring break messing with it. Already broke a decent socket wrench on some bolts...

And i know the guys at the shop anyways. It'* not gonna hurt. I'd rather have them check it out, and use the correct tools to get it put back together. I also need the car ASAP.

It'* not an issue of doing the work, it'* time, or lack thereof, and blah.

Oh i have, and on the parents bill at home!

Now, Nate sux. I had to replace the tie rod, wanna tell the story bud? maybe i should keep ur tools as reparations.

But the boot was ripped, it didn't seem like it because the clamp was still on the majority of it on the axle, but it was 2 pieces. It'* all together now though.

I'll reimburse you for it if you want me too......One of us cross threaded it though....and I don't remember which one of us may have done it??

I touched the tie rod before you got there, and put the nut back on torqued... It'* not a big deal. The joint was getting nasty.
