C/V boots are to protect the C/V axle joints from dirt and to hold the grease inside. By the time you get done replaceing the boots, its worth just to replace the axle assemblies as a whole and then get a lifetime warranty on them from most rebuilders.

I esued to have a 92 civic. The CV boots keep dust and debris from messing up your CV joints. The CV axle parts are around 70 bucks per side

The boots protect the CV joints from dirt from the road, and keep the grease where it should be instead of being washed off. Things will fail quickly without good boots in place.http://www.drivewire.com/hondaparts/...tkit.htmlParts are about $16 per side, the boot, the clamps, and the grease comes in the kit.So, both sides $32 plus whatever the mechanic charges if you don't do it yourself.

a CV boot is a outer or inner rubber boat that protects the axle shaft from any dirt and also keeps the bearings inside of them lubricated. Most the time is better to change the whole axle especially is you hear clicking noise coming from them when turning. I t will cause you a very small difference but you will have a new axle with new boots. Rather than have new boots with old shaft.

i got mine fixed a few months ago. Depending where you live ( i live near an autozone and oriely's) You also need to know if its just the boot you need or the whole axle which can save you some time. Prices range, i just said screw it and got the whole axle anyways and it was about 70 bucks, but they will charge a core charge but you get it back if you give them the old cv boot.

Take it to Honda Dealer for quality service. You may pay a little more but they will do it right. It's the only way to get Honda Quality.
