problem #1

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

Boots for front cv joints are very noisy when the wheel is turned all the way either direction. I took it to two different dealers and they sprayed some silicone lubricant on them which quieted them for abour 4 days.. then they were loud again. I'm worried that the dry boots will eventually crack, leaking out the grease and destroying the cv joint itself. (which Chrysler will blame on me)
