You can get new rubber boots at most auto parts stores for a few buck. Regrease them, put on the new boots and slip a piece of heat shield around it like this:99cobra said:Any recommendations? The rubber has dried / fried / cracked on mine. Is there a heavy duty part / fix anyone knows of?

Comes in many different sizes. I find the 1.5" one works pretty well. I buy in as a couple of feet length and replace it every time I have the ball joints apart for some reason. If you need a source online, let me know. :cheers:speedpup said:That's a great way to do it but you can wrap it like I said if you don't want to take it apart. I will have mine apart soon doing hubs and probably do it like Subdriver. I'll check the dealer by me tomorrow to see if he has it. Does it come in different sizes?
My pleasure, glad you found some. That's what I do as well. Everytime I have the tie rod or ball joints apart for some reason I cut another inch off and slip it on there. :cheers:speedpup said:Thanks Subdriver I got some today all they had was 18" which was 23.00. That will be plenty for a while. I'll put it on as every thing is coming apart soon.
