93 Buick La Sabre

Just replaced a lug bolt and nut on my 93 Buick La Saber (new tires and they broke it off). It has 151,000 miles on it. I notice a small amount of grease
around the wheel area. I investigated and found the rubber boot on the drive shaft has a clamp missing where it attaches to the wheel assembly. Is it possible to fill this with more grease and replace the boot or just the clamp?

In theory you can just put on a new clamp if that's really all that's wrong. Whether you can physically do it on that model without taking the shaft out, I can't say. GW

It appears I can get a new clamp on it but what about filling it with grease what kind do I get and how do I get it inside. Or should I just replace the whole thing.

When you buy a boot it comes with a litle packet of grease (like a big ketchup packet) and clamps. I don't suppose I'd go to that trouble though if it's not clicking and it never dried out inside. Just pull back the boot and scoop a dalop of bearing grease in there then seal it up with a new clamp. This is advice is for ones OWN car only, not for payed repair work with liabilities involved. GW

I've never had to replace mine. It looks like you might be able to get a hose clamp on it. I do know they sell boot kits - but I don't know if grease comes with it.
