Experienced/Knowledgeable Comments from Do-It-Yourselfers:
On my '99 Accord 5spd manual with 110,000 miles, the front CV Boots are
beginning to have "sweat stains", indicating some leakage of the
grease-packed CV joints. I'm told it's easier to just replace the whole
side axle, rather than replace the boots and messy grease.
Are the dealer parts worth the extra cost, or have you had good luck with
another supplier? I see re-built axles anywhere from $60 on up, browsing
online and ebay. If not the dealer, who specifically would you recommend?
On DIY scale of 1 - 3, I'm 2.
