    Has any one just had a CV boot just let go. My rear driver Side let go. Everything was so hot back there it was even smoking a tad. No slop in the axle or CV joints. The slight smoke was coming from the actual inner CV

    So Now I have some internet and I’m back home from my trip I can post some more. So driver side rear boot just gave away. Was not from anything coming in contact and ripping it. Both axles were verry hot and I could not touch with My bare hand along with the rear differential. I was on mile 120 of trail riding. Nice easy Cruze. CV was in good condition so I just disassembled and put a new CV boot on with some new grease. Got some more miles in after. Started to notice grease leaking out around the driver side rear boot now. So both sides in the rear. I need to bring a heat gun to check temps of theses axles and rear differential on my next trip. This might be a problem. One broken front driver axle, now both rears might be problematic. Don’t know if this is caused by the extreme heat from the rear differential. Here is a picture of the driver side starting to ooz grease after I fixed the passenger side. Oh 1000 trail miles on the machine.

    Have you checked your rear diff oil level? Seems like a smoking CV boot is not normal... The heat has to be generated from somewhere.

    There was a big discussion about this early on with the 1st wolverine. Chief took readings with a heat gun on the CV joint next to the final drive as high as 270 degrees. Many thought some of the heat was from the exhaust or glowing red header pipe. They wrapped there exhaust and installed heat shields. It may have helped a little but the bottom line is that they just get really hot. To hot to touch at all, however I’ve never read a post about a boot giving up from it till now!
