newbie post- cv boot replacement?
Just replaced front brakes on my 95 GC and found a torn cv boot, and the other one leaking, so I need to replace both. Has anyone done this? Trying to get a feel for what is involved and how difficult it is. Yes, I did a search with no luck. I'm no mechanic (obviously) but I have done basic driveway repairs for many years. Thanks in advance, I appreciate the help!
I recently had mine done, both sides. It would have cost about $500 if I didn't have the warranty. $500 seems to be the magic number for most repairs on a GC.
96 Grand Cherokee Limited
5.2 V8 no mods.
04 VW Touareg
Locked @ both ends
2007, 4 door, powered by a minivan engine, locked and riding on 35's.

igofshn-- if I ever need to do this again-- looks like the ball joints do NOT need to be separated (I thought they did), but instead simply remove brakes (easy), then remove backing plates and go from there. At least that's what it looks like they did on mine. Does this sound correct? If so, is it really that simple or is there any other complication to it? This info may help someone else trying to do it themselves.......
