    Iv seen the write up for the cv boot slide mod and wondered could it be simpler???

    I thought could u just cut the existing metal band off the small side of the boot slide the boot to the desired length on the shaft u want it. And take a hose clamp and clamp it back on to the perfect spot and be done?

    Could it be that simple?
    Has anyone done this? Looking for answeres
    Any help would be great.

    You can read through the thread and that OP used common hose clamps, he updated every once in a while and I think that after 6 months everything was fine!
