CV boot replacment

Asked by Nov 14, 2019 at 10:16 PM about the 1993 Toyota Corolla LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Bought universal boot kit from Autozone. Instructions say to cutoff old boot
retaining the thick molded ring which mates to the tulip CV joint. Now for the
issue; the new boot is not big enough to easily fit over the molded tulip ring. I
have a spare boot as the first boot is on the shaft and filled with grease. Since I
am unable to stretch the end of the boot to fit over tulip with ring. I was able to
fit the tulip ring into the spare boot. My question is with this so much tension on
the boot will it last any reasonable length of time? Or should I try to get OEM
boot from Toyota dealership?

If it does not fit you know what to do.

Well that is the thing, I made it I am looking to see if any one else has come across this and made it fit too.


Run it till it rips or breaks.
