I just got mine done.. It was partially covered by the warranty.. since the boots split open and caused the damage to the shafts.. they covered the boots for splitting.. but they didn't cover for the damage that was cause to the shafts.. so it came out to $280 out of pocket.. which I was quoted $1300 from the dealer.. so.. I'm More than happy with that... but from the place I did it at .. www.tiresplus.com even if the warranty didn't cover it it would have only have been about $560 so either way that's a lot better than the dealer quote...

Mine split this weekend. I have grease all over the front passenger wheel. Looks like this repair is in my future.

I did some other damage too, but that's for a future post when I have a little more time....

Just did my passenger side 2 weekends ago. I didn't take any photos or anything, but I can report that there were absolutely no suprises or clearance issues. It's exactly the same as the V6, and I didn't need to undo the brakes or control arms. The hardest part was getting to all the triple-square bolts with enough room to break the well-siezed threads loose. A little toying around with a breaker bar, floor jack, and electric impact wrench eventually got em all out of the way.
