KYB Strut Boot

Part No. SB101 Warranty Details  

See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

KYB Strut Boot Kits keep your struts protected from dirt, dust, sand, salt and other road debris. These harmful elements cause abrasive wear to the polished shaft, upper seal & bushing. KYB Strut Boot Kits prevent these contaminants from entering the strut by covering the entire strut shaft in a highly durable plastic bellows. This can easily extend the life of the strut. The KYB Strut Boot Kit includes a poly foam travel-limiting bumper. It’s designed to protect the strut from bottoming out and protects other components from extreme movement damage.

Product Features:
  • Superior quality boot helps protect the strut shaft from leak-causing dirt and debris
  • Poly foam bumper prevents the strut from bottoming out
  • Built with design and quality that matches or exceeds OE
  • Protects the upper seal and bushing

    Comments about KYB Strut Boot:

    Product description is wrong. This is not rubber. This is PVC. Simple PVC. bought one and had to return it. Before that, chat assistant assured me that it is neoprene rubber.
    Checked with stores and substitutes are also PVC.
    I need rubber, guys. I don't want PVC. Sell me rubber. PVC will tear in less than 6 months.

          Comments about KYB Strut Boot:

          I took this out of the box and I chose not to use it. The part was made with thin plastic that when I compressed the bellows it kinked. It did not seem as it would last. The 15 year old part would do a better job protecting the shock, so I installed the old part.

              A:

              No this is just a boot that protects the strut from dirt. It sounds like you need a strut mount.

          • Q:

            is that the 'stop' right above the bellows that keeps the strut from 'bottoming out'?
