The only thing I have read about cv boot is that if it is ripped then there was a chance that dirt got in. If it was me, I would remove the axle and check the inner cv joint and replace the boot. ...

Thanks for the info guys. Looks like I may rob the 'is' for now. I'm kinda curious though, wondering if the 4:10 LSD had anything to do with putting it over the edge. It was pretty bad.

Drive Shaft

I don't think I want to know the answer to this, but anyone just replace the universal or if the universal goes bad does the entire driveshaft need to be replaced? Thanks.
