I installed them on my driveshaft last May and have been holding fine for the last 3k miles

Order directly from them and you'll get a lifetime warranty. Give Dave a call next Monday. After the purchase you'll get an email purchase confirmation with the USPS priority tracking #
Well they ship their parts out quickly, I had it in 2 days. Thanks again for the recommendation John.
Finally had a chance this morning to tackle this relatively easy job. I’m gettin really good at removing P2 driveshafts. If anyone in the area needs work involving driveshaft removal I’ve got it down to about 20 minutes! The hardest part was getting the new boot to not spin around when I was trying to tighten the SS ziptie.
Anyhow, no lifetime warranty offered any longer, musta been a promo thing they were doing. I truly doubt I’ll have to replace this CVJ on this car again, very low probability of failure on fronts and rears. That being said, the original boot type seal rear of the joint capsule can and does take a beating from the heat coming off the cat, but the boot that comes with the Colorado Driveshaft kit does seem very substantive.
There is a pinhole on the front (and rear) cap that you can inject grease into with a needle fitting for your grease gun. Let that grease gun sit out in the hot sun for a while!
