Where to buy strut dust boots?

Recommended Posts

A couple would be perfect - especially since I just bought a pair of generic ebay items (didn't want to take the risk on two pairs if they might not fit!).

Let me know how much you want...

Let me know if these suit; from memory they were new when I bought some bump stops as they came together but I only used the stops.

Cheers mate much appreciated. Could I be more of a PITA and get some very rough dimensions?  ID of the  holes and unstretched length?  Just worried they look shortish (pics are deceiving I know) as my stock broken ones are very long.

Id is approx 55mm at the tube side and length is 200mm. They do look a tad shorter than originals but may work.

Just buy some universal rack end boots and trim them to suit. Ran them for years on the rally car.

~$40 from Burson.

Cheers, they sound near-identical to the 2 I've bought off ebay for $25, so if it's ok with you I'll wait till they come in and see if they fit, then buy yours for the rear if they do?  I prefer to check first rather than stuff you around.

 

Thanks for the universal rack boot suggestion - that's a great idea too if these don't work out :).

I haven't bothered  with dust boots they can cause more trouble than they are worth. When they eventually split the dirt will get in and stay at the bottom grinding away at the piston rod.

Cheers guys, much appreciated.

 

Still waiting on my ebay delivery from dandenong would you believe!  The seller shipped straight away but they've been in the back of an Australia Post van (issued from a post office 5 mins from my house) for over a week and a half!  Seems the driver forgot to deliver them.  Had to open a case for them to look into it, etc.  Pain in the proverbial!

... And when I finally got the package, it was torn open and empty.  So the saga continues as i raise a dispute with Aust Post, etc. 

 

Dimitri let me know if I can still have yours, how much you want, etc.  Ideally i'll ask if you could post them (at my expense) as I'll struggle to get to your area given how much I've got on atm.

I have a spare set of these (used but in perfect working order) that were removed when I installed coilovers. If you are a future reader of this thread feel free to PM me cause I'll prolly still have them.

I may well be interested - only have the two I got from Dimitri atm (they've arrived safe - thanks!  Haven't tried to fit them yet) and I'll need another two given I'll prob just get the cash back from aust post (if they ever respond to my claim!).  Plus if you've used them already on a zed at least I know they'll fit!
