    Default Driveshaft Boots?

    Just had a call from the garage letting me know the driveshaft boots need replacing as they're split and leaking. Theyve quoted me £112 to replace them. How bigger job is it to do them myself?

    Just been doing some googling and for the sake of £112 I'm just going to let them do it. They've got the front end apart to replace the springs so it'll be easier than me crawling around on a snow covered floor!
