If the axle is original equipment and if it hasn't been damaged then IMO I would clean repack and replace the boot. Original equipment axles are the best (GNK LOBRO) There is a flood of cheap aftermarket axles that have entered the remanufacturing stream. They fail early and people send them in for the cores on remans when they have to replace them again. There are several reports of these cheap axles being used and sent out as reman's. If you have GNK's hold on to them and rebuild them if you must new ones are expensive.
