Using boots keeps the water/sand out, but if it leaks, that water/sand never
comes out.

Hi Ken, I run those boots you can get at any4wheel drive shop. I run clamps on the inside only with no clamp on the wheel end. I bet that six out of ten Amphicars have water or at least a lot of moisture trapped inside those drive shafts. I use the boots to keep the grease contained. I just swim them and grease them. And we swim our car a lot hours at a time. Later, Tommy still missing Celina in Tampa</font>

I'd probably be interested in the re-rebuilt shocks that fit perfectly
instead of the ones that kinda fit.
I'm taking out my tranny & noticed that one of the rubber boots on the wheel
axles is shot.
What's the opinion of using boots vs not using boots?
Using boots keeps the water/sand out, but if it leaks, that water/sand never
comes out.
