CV Axle and Bearings or Axle Only???

It looks like my front pass CV boot is shot. The driver's is good, but I'm going to go ahead and replace them both.

Since I'm going to disassemble everything, I was wondering if I should just go ahead and spring for the wheel bearings at the same time.

The car (97 ZJ Orvis) has 173k miles on it.

Thanks for the $0.02.

Ben

With that kind of mileage, most definitely! Your probably going to want to replace the hub assembly.
