Cv Boots


Recommended Posts

hi all,


just had a peer under my boot today to see my cv boots both have spilts in them. they are the bolt on shaft type. does this need a different cv boot to the normal push in type?


also, does anyone have a link to the boots i need?

or what model sierra my back axle was off to help with my searches.


Thanks, Steve

i did try but the answers that looked most relavent were on the old board so i cant see them.


i'm guessing 2WD cosworth cv boots should do it as iirc they had bolt on driveshafts too


can anyone confirm?


Thanks, Steve

I used stretch boots off ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2-x-SLIDE-A-BOOT-MEDIUM-STRETCHY-CV-KITS-FITTING-CONE-/170513137207?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item27b35ffe37

There's a thread somewhere and most owners that commented reccommended them they fit various sizes and come with fitting tools and steel securing bands.


Worth a look.

Did my daughters Civic last weekend with a GKN universal split boot. Just cut to size, clean everything then glue it together and fit fixing bands. Cost me £14 from a local factors, even included grease and gloves. Unless it falls apart rapidly I won't be going back to stripping everything down to fit a boot.

I can also recommend the Panda-tools stretch boots. I replaced all 4 on my drive shafts, only problem was holding the shaft steady on my own.


Still only a 10 minute job to fit each one once you have cut the old one off, much easier with the drive shaft in a vice.
