You will need to remove the shafts to install the new boots. You should be able to pick up a kit at you local parts store. Um, the job is not really for a novice, I would find a buddy that has done it before.

You got it...

Thats what they are called, not a hard project, but one that needs to be done right, and done soon. You do not want road dirt getting inside the boot and grinding away at the joint. It will pop, eventually, rendering the blazer motionless.....

I haven't done it myself in quite some time, but the kits are fairly straight forward, just be ready to get dirty. Actually, I don't remember boot replacement costing too much from the shop either.....at least compared to a new axle...

Good luck.

Cheers,
Russ
