I have run into similar situations in the past. Damaged a brand new boot trying to seat it on the ball joint, and they tell me I have to buy a whole new balljoint, Now I have a place to look should it happen again. I should have said the ball joint was faulty because the boot wouldn't fit without ripping.

At least I now have an alternative. Thanks for another good score.

How do you install a new boot to a lower ball joint. Would they have to be pressed out and then pressed back on with the new boot??????


I have a 48 chevy truck air bagged with a Nova clip and the boots have come out of the seal..


THANKS

website for Hortons

I've been going nuts trying to find boots for my mustang II front end. I bought a car where the front end parts were in a box and the car used all the boots for another car. What's the website for Horton's? I've never bought anything from them.

My damaged boot was on a mopar. upper ball joint. They are threaded into the aframe and then you get to fight ot get them on. I've shredded one getting it on and roughed up several. It would be good to have new ones when ever you abuse them with the fork. Especially when i've paid at least $40 for a ball joint in the past only to have to use the old boot from the bad joint...

Hortons

Someone on another thread listed Hortons as a place to buy the boots. Does anyone know the website of Hortons?

I see what you guys are saying now. You are using specialty control arms not OEM with the OEM ball joint. You will have to find the vendor (supplier) of the ball joint(s) and see if they will sell the boots separately in that case.

FORD'S ball joints (design) are not tough enough for aftermarket use or are the aftermarkets just cheaper causing the supply problems you have? The OEM ball joint boots were available from FORD at one time.

C7AZ 3A105-B Upper Boot
C7OZ 3A105-A Lower Boot

They would have been able to be sourced aftermarket also.

The MUST II used heavy FORD joints. I am glad I found this out as if I were to have (do) one, it would have to have OEM components on it to make service a lot easier.

You got it! And no one sells them separately.
