    Default drive shaft boot

    Just inspected my front suspension. The drivers side inner drive shaft boot is torn and the grease has leaked out. Is this boot avail separately?

    I called the dealer here (now it's a Chevy dealer) and they told me that it would be faster/cheaper if I imported the parts myself.

    The drivers side front and rear shocks appear to have leaks though it still is damping ok. I guess I'll need a full set of shocks as well. Wonder if the bad road package that is on the car requires different shocks than standard. Anyone know?

    Cheers!

    Try your local motor factors, they might be able to get one for you.

    And don't drive it unless you wannna replace the CVJ as well, once the boot rips the joint dries out very quickly and you then get clacking everytime you turn a corner.

    Yes, it's parked. Now need to source the boot. Anyone know the part number (inner boot on driver side shaft) -- it's for a 2.2. Is there a kit with both boots (inner and outer)?
    Thx!
