Looking at an 11 Sorento that seems to have had the right rear axle replaced...noticed axle nut had been off, and the outer boot has green paint dabs on clamp and at crimp.....the other side has green on clamp and pink on crimp. Any significance? Any known axle issues? Thanks!

These axles have been pretty solid. Maybe there was a boot leak that got repaired. Also, depending on the style of wheel speed sensor (two dofferent styles), the rear knuckle has to be removed to replace it. This could also be likely, as I have replaced a few of these already. One thing to note, Kia usually makes paint marks on various parts so we know when a part has been removed or changed. The paint marks could be factory.
