A common problem with Rubber Boots these days is perishing/cracking, rubber doesn’t seem to be what it used to be.
Polyurethane will not perish/crack like normal Rubberproviding a much longer service life.
These boots are Double Convoluted which allows them to move/flex more without stretching.
We also have boots to fit Track Rod Ends, please click HERE to see them
Fitting, you can remove and refit the coil clips by either using a small screwdriver to carefully wind the clip around the boot or use a zip tie to wind the coil clips around the boot (Gallery pictures in our Track Rod End Poly Boot listing will help you understand this fitting advice)
You need to carefully pick up one end of the larger coil clip using a small flathead screwdriver and then wind the clip around the original Rubber Boot to lift it out of its recess, your original coil clip can then be used to fit your new Poly Boot.
Fitment is the reverse, start by sitting one end of the coil clip into the recess and then wind it around the Poly Boot until the coil clip fits back into its recess.
Take care not to puncture the boot with the screwdriver.
You need to carefully pick up one end of the larger coil clip using a small flathead screwdriver and then slip a small zip tie over the end of the clip, pull the zip tie to lift the clip out of its recess and wind it around and over the boot, your original coil clip can then be used to fit your new Poly Boot.
Fitment is the reverse, start by slipping the zip tie into the coil clip, sit one end of the coil clip into the recess and then pull the zip tie the opposite way to removal while winding around the boot until the clip sits back into its recess. (Pull the zip tie towards the A-Frame Ball Joint body)
We would recommend that you do not fit the smaller clip that your original Rubber Boot may be fitted with, leaving this clip off will allow old grease to squeeze out as new grease is pumped in, it will also stop the Boot from swelling and popping off from over greasing.
