Off topic but I'm going through this with my Toyota right now. An Indy found a leaking CV boot on it today and their fix is to replace a 1/2 axle. Remanufactured part is $99.50 with $150 labor.
Just to add, this is the 2nd go around for these. Both 1/2 axles had leaking boots at around 75,000 miles on the car. It now has 117,000+ and the 3rd is shot. What I don't know without further research is how many years it has been since the other failures. Not that I'll add to this OT, but it's something I'm curious about.
