I dont think this looks right?

So while I was checking my brake pads I was curious to see why I was hearing a clicking/knocking noise when I do a sharp turn. I dont think my boot is suppose to look like this.
This is the front passenger boot right next to the caliper.

So correct me if my wrong but I dont think my boot is suppose to be like that. I think im going to have the whole cv joint replaced. Im not sure how much it will cost (here in ontario) but im going to have this repaired asap.

That is definitely a ripped boot and a gritted up joint.

It must have been split for some time if the clicking started. You'll need to replace the CV boot and joint. Better check your other CV boot while your at it. My drivers side one went at 95k miles, passenger side one is still good nearly 30k miles later but I do check it weekly. If you catch it early enough you just need to replace the boot.

Yeah I think so too for the tear to be that big. I did check the drivers side and there was no tear at all. I will be checking it more often (both sides) when I get it fixed hopefully this week.

Yes do change the shaft it should not be that hard on that side but you will need to drain and fill the tranny to do it

AT Fluid or MT oil, depending on which tranny you have.

Check the wheel bearings before you get into it as well, as this would be the perfect time to do them if they are in need. You also are 3/4 of the way into removing your struts, so if they are due you can do them as well.
