    Comments about Dorman - Help C.V. Joint Bolted Split Boot Kit Front Outer:

    This product may be good for emergency situations, but I wouldn't waste my time with installation. You'd be better off buying the OEM replacement boot and taking apart the CV Axle to replace, or purchase a replacement CV Axle. Tiny screws that have poor thread quality, extremely loose fit made for a poor seal with clamping bands that would not hold with poorly designed clamps. The exterior boot end (large end) was so loose that it nearly needed a fold to seal on the outer CV Axle hub flange. The clamps themselves were flimsy and hard to get a good seal. Coupled with the misshapen boot, it almost immediately failed. Don't buy !!

    Comments about Dorman - Help C.V. Joint Bolted Split Boot Kit Front Outer:

    First off it came with no clamps. Second it was way to large to fit a 94 GMC no way it would seal. With that being said this is the first bad experience I've had with advanced auto. I'm usually very happy with they're products and will continue to shop there.

                To seal the boot.

                the boot is spilt so you can slip it on without removing the axle and the screws bolt the two ends together sealing the grease in the boot.

              • A:

                They are actually tiny bolts with nuts that are used to fasten the "split" together. I used one for the first time a year ago on my 1978 GMC Motorhome (GM used the Olds Toronado engine & tranny when they built them between '73 - '78). Before I've always pulled the axle to replace the boot. I still prefer that, but didn't have time to do that last year. Is a pain getting the nuts on the tiny little bolts, but once you get them all tightened and the straps on both ends, you're done!!! Don't have to put everything back together.
