    Got torn inner cv boots and was looking into replacing 'em asap and came across these boots a lil pricey but if they do the job they r worth it. However I just wanted to know if any1 has used these reddish cv boots and have they been all that or they u fluke? Thanks in advance

    ....More like he needs a diff drop.

    GA1044 - do you have a lift kit? Did your CV boots rip due to axle shaft angles due to the lift?

    If yes.... Do some research on a 'diff drop' for the front. I don't have one myself but it's specifically designed to get your axle shaft angles back to stock angles.
    In fact, here's a link:
    http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pa...ategory_id=63&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

    If you decide to get the diff drop - then you won't need some fancy high angle CV boot.

    Did you call the dealership to get a quote on Toyota CV boots? or shop around for standard replacement CV boots. Compare prices.

    Already got the diff drop just guessing since they just got torn I might as well replace em with some better ones

    i've never compared them side by side but i have been told that the 2nd gen ones are bigger.. it would make since since the diff is larger than previous years they probably used a larger cv as well... as far as i know at the moment there is no other boot for the 2nd gen trucks...

    never seen the diff drop on a 1st gen but i know from experience on the 2nd gens they only drop the diff like 1/8th to 1/4 inch.. plus they arnt compatible with just about any skid plate either. i took mine off a long time ago and havnt noticed any difference in the boots rubbing or anything.

    i've torn two boots already on my drivers side cv.. got both the inside and outside boot on the same axle. now its my trail spare. both mine were due to branches on the trail not from rubbing though. i've been trying to work up a LCA skid that would incorporate some sort of guard for the outter boot to help deter this problem.. still in the design phase though.........

    Wtf!!! Did I miss something? What did Janster say that you are refering to. What ever it was I doubt it qualifies you calling her a terd on crack. FYI Janster is a female.

    Is it necesarry to call dgerm an idiot? C'mon man name calling certainly isn't making any progress. Maybe you can correct him if you feel he is wrong but simply calling him an idiot accomplishes absolutly nothing.

    I'm sorry for getting off topic. I'm not trying to pick a fight and I have no doubt in your answer/answers.

    You're 100% correct you are more than welcome to say whatever you would like, freedom of speech. I just don't understand the necesity of being so harsh. That's all.
