New boots - Re: [DML] CV boot replacement



I called Carquest to check that part number, the guy I talked to this
time told me that they didn't have any boot kits for that car.  So I
gave him the part number I have, he said "Oh, hmm, I guess we do have
that"  He says it's an inner boot kit, but I'm not sure if I trust him...
Give SpecialTauto a call if you don't need it today.
