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

        I installed these boots on a 2000 Chevrolet Metro. The shaft side of the boot fit relatively loose as compared to an exact fit boot, but still seemed to work fine once it was clamped down. The boots needed to be trimmed to fit my application which was easy to do using a SHARP razor blade. Overall the rubber seems to be soft and of good quality. I bought 2 boots and one did not come with any clamps which annoyed me, but I planned to use heavy duty zip ties anyway so I wasn't an issue for me. Overall I'd say this is a decent product.

            I bought this to replace a torn CV boot on my Audi Quattro. The bands supplied are cheap and impossible to get tight! Also the boot barely fit around the shaft and was missing a ridge that holds it in place. a 30min job turned in to 4hrs including a trip to the parts store to buy new bands. Next time I will spend the extra money and get the proper boot not this universal one
