Basically you purchase the entire axle assembly. Usually around $60 ...maybe a little less or more.

Saves time, effort and greasy hands..

I do just the boot and grease if you catch it before it wrecks the joint.
Its a whole lot easier just to buy and exchange your whole shaft.

Same philosphy here. Every time on any car, much simpler, and worth the few extra $.

actually to replace the boot properly you have to remove the shaft anyway

unless you buy one of those cheap "speedyboots"
