GREAT responses! I needed the laugh this morning.

Thank you for verifying there wasn't some unobtanium part in there that would require $5k in new tools, and 1k hours to replace.

Happy New...

Anyone know what this could be?

My wife said this was dangling behind the steering wheel. It's not from any jewelry she's ever had and I was concerned something came loose or the like in the mechanism. The "string" is stretchy. ...

Yeah, according to the shop, the axles seizing in there is not uncommon. No matter what I did, it wouldn't have come out, so I'm glad I didn't waste any money on more tools. Definitely worth it to...

What about the "cover" that goes around the hub? It's metal and there's not really a place to grab? I'll snap a pic if needed.

Got one- done that before. I have to pull the shaft out to do it since there is no room in the hub. Either way, now that I have the chaser, I'll just do it "correctly".

I took the whole passenger side out when doing front boots since I couldn't get the axle out of the hub. I'd do it all at once as MiniXP there is quite a bit that is redundant.

Dude, seriously? Front axle woes

This is just about infuriating.

So I take the time, make the mess, and get new boots installed. Bearings are perfect as I caught it before damage was done, so that part was good.
