Cv boots... Again...

Recommended Posts

I just changed my inner cv boots for Nissan's, they where really really expensive... Almost 70 dolars (COP$200.000), and the outer cv boots for OEM or i don't know the brand for 7 dolars (COP$7.000).. really cheap.... But the Nissan's plastic seems much better that the cheap ones...

 

I have read good comments about Rockford cv boots....

I found these silicone and neoprene boots... http://www.autozone.com/drivetrain/cv-boot-kit#

Or these HippoRed, from Italy... http://www.hippored.com/?portfolio=cuffia-facile-easy-boot-cv&lang=en

 

Which could be a good quality cv boot and with a reasonable price?

Just go Rockford. There have been zero issues with those who have installed them. They cost a little more but are built to a higher standard.

How much do they last? In months or miles?

Thanks.

I have torn my Rockford CV boots. They are not bullet proof.

added a 2" spacer lift. OE axels with 160k miles on 2002 Only been running in 2wd since added in March

 

a little more stress on the boots,but would you expect to pop both outers ? passenger side seperated inner first an then I noticed outer clamp gave out.

 

no I notice Driver side is allowing grease to dump out, even though clamp entact still, but cant imagine for long.

 

I will install new axel assemblies since they are pretty cheap and 160k is a good run. Anyone have similar experience with spacer lift and then boot issues ?

 

thanks
