If it still has Hyundai axle, pull the axle and boot both ends.. Hyundai not sell full kit like Toyota, so you have to buy the outer in 1 box, and buy the inner in a box...
To boot an Elantra, you remove the inner joint and boot, then slide new outer down the shaft to the outer CV joint and assemble the clamps.. why put the old inner boot back on, only to need to pull it later somewhere and boot the inner.. do inner and outer and be done with it the first time.
Problem with aftermarket axle is that if boots need replace, nobody has boots for Joes' aftermarket axle, as parts not same dimension as the OE parts. I would not toss an OE axle unless it could not be serviced.
My 344,500 daily ride still has original axles in it, been booted 1 time (inner-outer), and joints filled with MOBIL-1 synthetic grease... no noises at all... just tire noises, and I need 4 tires already, been some 5yr now.
