CV Boot Replacement for 1995 Honda Civic EX

I had just installed the Eibach Pro-System (includes Pro-Kit springs and Pro-Damper struts) into my family's 1995 Honda Civic EX coupe. While doing so, I noticed that the driver side axle and wheel well is full of grease. A closer examination made me realized that the CV boot is probably cracked, meaning I'll have to replace it.

It would be a really GREASY job, so I started search around on the Internet to see my options. And I found an interesting option from the "Honda Civic CV Joint Boot Replacement". The following is two excerpt from that article in relationship to this one.

"Question: I have a 1995 Honda Civic EX with 111,000 miles. It has the 1.6 liter SOHC (VTEC) engine, automatic transmission, ABS, P/S, A/C, and cruise control. I'm getting ready to replace the CV joints. The right outer boot is torn, and although the left isn't torn, it doesn't look that good, either."

"Answer: I have found that it is more cost effective to replace the whole axle shaft with a rebuilt axle. Four axle boots, if you do the outer's you have to do the inner's as well, are going to cost close to $150.00 and take you about five or six hours to replace. If the boot has been torn for a while, then you are probably looking at a bad CV joint which can run, from the dealer, about $275.00 each.

You can get a rebuilt axle assembly, with all new boots and joints, for about $100.00 each. Replacing the boots is a really dirty job. Two days after doing one I find my KFC still tastes like CV joint grease. With rebuilt axles you pop the old one out and pop the new one in."

Replacing the entire axle with a rebuilt axle assembly sounds like a pretty good option. The question is, where do I get a rebuilt axle assembly for $100 for my family's 1995 Honda Civic EX?

I found out that you can pretty much get it from any auto parts store, like Kragen, AutoZone, or Pep Boys. A quick search at Kragen showed a whole list of them for much less than $100.
