Scotty, My 2010 Nissan Rogue, with 95,000 miles, was just in an accident. Someone in a pickup truck backed into the front right side of my car, fairly hard. When I got home I lifted the vehicle, and I noticed there was a dark green sludge all over the suspension parts. I noticed that there was a tear in the CV axle boot. The vehicle drove home fine, but I'm not sure if there could be any other damage done that caused the boot to tear. Could the impact have messed up something in the transmission, or a wheel bearing, etc? Would replacing just the boot be ok? Thanks

I'm repairing it by myself...

Yep, need to have it checked out by a pro, or let the insurance company deal with it if you have coverage for that kind of damage.

since it was just sitting, odds are a new boot alone would be fine. But depending on speed and force, many things could be damaged from wheel bearings to lower control arm to tranny damage. Have a pro check that one out
