1998 Toyota Land Cruiser Question: CV Boots Leaking

 

Question

Visitor, 4.7L V8, Seattle, WA, December 28, 2010, 14:37

I had 3 dealership mechanics in the past 4 years tell me the CV boots are leaking and need to be replaced. I looked and don't see any leaks. Is this realy necessary? I had a friend tell me he drove his vehicle for 4 years with no CV boots, it rode like cr@p but still worked. My LC drives like a champ with no noise. Any opinions out there?

    get them fixed. get another opinion and have them show you the issues. i would never think of putting myself in the position of driving without boots.
