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 Rubber so will give a much longer service life.
These boots are Double Convoluted which allows them to move/flex more without stretching.
We also have these 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 screw driver to carefully wind the clip round the boot or use a zip tie to wind the coil clips round 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 flat head screwdriver and then wind the clip round 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 in to the recess and then wind it round the Poly Boot until the coil clip fits back in to its recess.
Take care not to puncture the boot with the screwdriver.
Zip Tie :-
You need to carefully pick up one end of the larger coil clip using a small flat head 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 round 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 in to the coil clip, sit one end of the coil clip in to the recess and then pull the zip tie the opposite way to removal while winding round the boot until the clip sits back in to 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 swelling and popping off from over greasing.
