axle

My cv boot is on the verge of spliting. Should i just let it split and ride out the axle or should I change the boot? My axle has 105k on it so I guess I need new axle anyway. if I change the boot, how long can my current axle last?

if you dont feel any problems right now in your axles you can run quite a bit on it. why not change the whole axle out?

I want to change my axle out only if my current axle with a new cv boot will not last another say 30 or 50k due to normal wear and tear. Can stock axle with new boot last 150 or 200k?
