    I just noticed some nice tan grease splashed all over the right under side (from facing the front of the car) It's from a torn boot on the axle (outboard boot i think). How much longer can I drive this before it's fixed b/c i'm about 3 hours from home...Also how much would it cost to have it replaced?

    What axle should i ask autozone for...93-97 del sol vtec, or 99-00 civic si? I'm guessing the sol b/c no abs but just want to check

    um... no... once the boot tears the CV joints start to get dirt and crap in them. They'll eventually fail, meaning you won't be able to drive your car.

    Don't just get them "rebooted". Get the entire CV joints replaced, soon.

    3 hours won't kill anything, just stay away from sand, mud, and water.

    Replace that boot as soon as possible. Its only like $10.00 and takes about an hour.


    ***EDIT***

    DO NOT get one of those "quick boots" that you screw together. They are garbage.

    or go get the entire replacement axle from autozone, Get the warranty then if it fails again just get it replaced for free, its easier to change the whole axle than just doing that stupid boot thing, those suck.

    Any 94+ Integra, 99-00 Si, or the any DelSol vtec B series axles will work. The ABS is not relevent.
