Lost retainer clip on front axle CV.
Was changing oil yesterday and saw grease blasted all over under the passenger side A-arm and rim.
Did some inspecting and saw that the retainer clip for the boot on the front CV axle, nearest the engine (not the outer one near rim) was missing and the boot slid off slinging grease everywhere.
Not sure how long it's been like that, but at least 2 weeks.
Is this something I can just 'repack' with grease and re-clip and kep going on, or do I need to replace that axle?
I think I saw that they usually run around $130 for a new axle; $300+/- installed.
Part of me thinks I will have to do new regardless. Truck is an '07 with 197000 miles on it, with a 2.5" lift.
Thanks for thoughts/experienced opinions!
