  1. Re: Front axle boots disconnected and exposed & CV axle rebuild

    Maybe there's an independent Toyota specialist around there who's less expensive? Don't let me talk you into anything you're uncertain about
  2. Re: Front axle boots disconnected and exposed & CV axle rebuild

    The inner axle takes 2 wrenches, one to hold the bolt while the other loosens the nut. I marked everything with a punch for reinstallation.
  3. Re: Front axle boots disconnected and exposed & CV axle rebuild

    Probably takes a bit longer (i suppose i exaggerate sometimes) but definitely not 8 hours, that's ridiculous. I did have a friend/mechanic assist but he just agreed with what i was doing.
  4. Re: Front axle boots disconnected and exposed & CV axle rebuild

    Is that 125$/hr!!! Say it ain't so. It's actually really quick to remove the axle- took about an hour, being slow. You just remove the wheel, then the hub (6 screws) then one big nut holding the...
