Anybody got a good supplier of balljoint boots? Ideally a link? And the required sizes?
I would use the club spares but it looks a bit if faff, and I need these PDQ! Unless the sparesmaster can get me them by Friday?

Car just failed MoT (I know it doesn't need one) on boots and a couple of V small weld patches (in fact, I think I will just fill with weld)
Under a tiny bit of pressure as RBRR looming!

Chris Witor sells Superflex ones.

Do you need top or bottom Clive?
I will attempt to measure both when I get back in about 2-1/2 hours....

I need 2x top and 1x bottom!
Possibly more, I think I stole a boot off a spare a while ago, though the spare eludes me!

Cheers
Clive
(about to take parents off for lunch, so no desperate rush, but hope to get things ordered later today)

Glad you've sorted this Clive.

I'll look for you at John o' Groats a week Saturday...
