Torn inner CV boot on passenger side, slung grease onto downpipe, causing obvious smoke and burning smell. Replaced both front axles with new units, DIY. Please be aware, CV joint/boot failure can be caused by worn/torn motor & transmission mounts. If the mounts aren't holding the engine & trans from moving, then they will place a lot of stress on your CV joints/boots.
