My 1950 Chevy truck has an updated Independent front suspension, i'm trying to find replacement dust boot for upper and lower ball joints.

ball joints are screw in type, Moog K772 and K719, the original boots are to big to fit inside the ring in the tubular control arm
the boot has an steel ring inside the rubber boot at the bottom.

here is pictures of boot in place and tubular arm "ring"

hope someone know where to get these

Thank you for this forum, it great to read everyone's comments.

measurements of the old boot

Neck hole
0.71 in / 18mm

Height
1.2 in /30mm

Bottom inside
1.83 in / 46.5mm

Bottom outside
2.22 in / 56.9 mm

the new ball joint came with dust boot, but they are at least 3/8 bigger in outside diameter.

Thanks

Can you find the mfr of the a-arms and get their recommendation? Whatever you use has to fit around the outside so moisture doesn't get in but that's a big circle to fit over, they may have used some oddball item procured special.
