[DML] Re: Ball joint boots, rack and p boots...

I don't know what kind of goo you are driving through but the rubber
should last longer. You can try cleaning it and spraying with
silicone. Once you start to see small cracks inside the convolutes it
is time to replace. Check the boots on the C/V joints too!
