This is currently what my driver'* side CV Shaft is like. The boot and joint have been shot before I took possesion of the car. And for some reason no matter what I do I still can't get the damned thing out of the hub:

lakeville ssei, pry harder, jimmy flyoyd, take motor from one, transfer to the other. Problem solved. For the most part, these motors are reliable, most of the dead bonnies are dead because theyre totaled in an accident.

No need to do that. Got a new motor in it already that has ~28k on it. Just working out the bugs on it now.

When i took my cv out, it took 3 people prying on it to get it out of the transmission, one guy prying on the cv itself and 2 more pushing down on the A arm.
