You can buy CV joint grease. I bought a tube the size of a toothpaste tube from Oriely's when I did mine.

It's the Detroit Axle grease boot that failed though.

I've got the grease, but it will just fling it out in every direction without a good boot to keep it in.

I am in the process of replacing the CV joint on the propeller shaft that was responsible for shredding the wiring harness on the Khaki Jeep. Upon inspection, it appears that the shaft end was worn down where the C-clip snaps in. But this is the first one I am rebuilding, so I am not sure what it is supposed to look like as far as the ridge/lip to hold the clip is concerned.
Can anyone confirm based on the pic below?

Yes that one has got some major wear issues! :shock:
You may be able to recut a new and slightly deeper eclip grove around the end of the shaft using a hacksaw that may possibly suffice. :idea:
But if you can get a new shaft, that may be your better option.... :wink:

Thanks WWDiesel. I appreciate the confirmation.
I ended up getting a bonus driveshaft with the drivetrain that I just picked up over the weekend. I am going to rebuild it while it is out and get rid of the one in the picture.
