I had the GP in for it's inspection today, to a "trusted" shop that I know wouldn't be out to screw me over. They found two things:
1. Brakes are low (I already knew that)
2. Front axle is "not good"
He said the boot on the axle is cracked and filling with road grit... I could run it for a little while but its going to need to get replaced soon, once I start hearing noise. Anyone ever heard of this? Whats involved?
