ah, i just thought of PM'ing you to see what you were running on the rally car, but you beat me to it...

yep, it's the stock halfshafts and the OEM boots...it's managed to tear through 3 of 'em now in less than a year and a half, on both sides.

i couldn't tell this one went until i had the car up on a lift to install my new headers and noticed the hole as i was inspecting the bunchy areas of the boot...usually i get some kind of warning, because i get the lovely aroma of grease burning on the cat section, but not this time.

the other 2 that were replaced i let the dealer handle, since it's one of those items i didn't want to wait around for having time to replace myself, and risk having the cv joint ground to death by dirt. i'll do this one myself this time, and see what happens...

any idea if there's like a big solid metal shielded rally axle that doesn't have boots that tear?
