CV joint boot

Recommended Posts

Clean the piss out of the it with some good brake cleaner or similar.


Then gob a bunch of black rtv silicone over the hole. You could even try an epoxy stuff that works on rubber. Those are kinda your only options. Or buy a new cv axle for like $70-90 from Napa or something.

I would suggest replacing the CV boot.  It's a messy job, as you have to clean off the old cv grease from the joint, and use the new grease included with the boot, but it also more likely to work better/last longer, as any dirt will destroy the joint quickly.  You do have to remove the cv axle from the truck to do this.
