CV Boot Repair Kits | Replace the Boot, Not the Whole Axle!
To understand the function of a CV boot, it's important to first look at what the "CV" part signifies. A constant velocity (CV) joint is a coupling found on one or both ends of axle shafts fitted to vehicles with independent suspension setups. A ball-shaped piece on the axle shaft end(s) sits within a cup-shaped piece attached to shorter shafts leading to the wheels or center mounting point. Ball bearings situated in between allow axles equipped with CV joints to flex and pivot.
