98 Forester CV Boot Replacement
While puttering around in the engine bay this afternoon I happened to notice that my inboard right front CV boot is cracked. It hasn't started to make any noise so I'm guessing that I might be able to simply replace the boot. I've replaced a CV shaft once before on an older Honda Accord, is it going to be basically the same deal for the Forester? Am I going to have to drain the transmission fluid? I was about to put in some Redline Heavy Shockproof oil one of these days so that's not so much of a big deal for me.
The Subaru dealership nearest me said the grease for the joint will be $20. I'm not too experienced but doesn't that sound a bit expensive for grease? Is there anything fanastic about this Subaru Grease? What do you guys think?
