I replaced the axle today. all good, up and running

I also took the busted one and cleaned it up to see where it failed. well it looks like it just popped out and tore the boot. that's it. doesn't appear to have anything damaged other than a small ding/mark. probably from hitting something on the way out.

do the joints normally fail like this? looks like i can put a new boot on it, smooth out the ding and have a perfectly good CV axle
