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

Hey Dani...

I put new tie rod ends on my car and the boots tore almost overnight.
 Toby Peterson was able to supply me with polyurethane covers that are
self lubricating.  It's been several months, and I just had my car up
on the rack at a tech session this last weekend.  They still look new!

Ask Toby if he can get the ball joint covers for you as well.
