Question:

Do solid rear axles have boots?

So I‘m considering buying an 02 Toyota Tundra. I had the vehicle checked out and one of the things noted were that the rear right and left boots needed replaced. I am kind of confused. Maybe something I don‘t know about that is new, but I was under the assumption solid axles didn‘t have boots. I thought boots (to me also known as CV boots) were only on independent suspensions. Are there a different kind of boots that are on the rear?Thanks

Answer:

The rear axle does not have boots, the front axels do, they are CV joints and do have boots that need replacing if they leak.
