Cv Shaft

Another issue with IFS is the front axle halfshafts. One of ours had a busted CV boot (right), and though the new boot is only $15, we chose to splurge and get a whole new halfshaft ($55) rather than chance some internal contamination and spend time wrestling the new boot on. Our truck is the heavy-duty eight-lug 3/4-ton so it uses the same shafts as the 1-ton.
