Rear Bilsteins shock boots

Anybody run there rear billys 5100 without the shock boots? Should it be ok too run like that? I figure it cant be all that bad since none of the other brands like IVD, Sway-a-Way, Fox, King, etc none of them come with boots.

Theyre nice to have.. Keeps from sand (or mud) getting on the piston/shaft and messing up the seal into the chamber.


And most of those brands you have to send in to get rebuilt.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
