Energy Suspension Polyurethane Universal Dust Boots
Importance of Dust Boots
Many of you are finding out that the rubber boot on your ball joint or tie rod has rotted away or has split. These boots are extremely important for the suspension of your vehicle. Fortunately, Energy Suspension makes Universal Dust boots that will fit most vehicles. These dust boots are made of polyurethane and are far more durable than rubber. This will seal your boot to retain the grease in the joint, as well as protecting the joint from dirt, sand, water, and snow.
How to get your measurements
In order to select the proper boot, you will first need to grab a few measurements. The best way to do this is with a set of digital calipers. You will need to measure the diameter of the base where the boot will sit, the diameter of the shaft (also called the Pin Opening Diameter) and the height of the boot. Once you have gotten to your tie rod end measure these three spots. Be sure to be as exact as possible and to write down your measurements. If you have any trouble getting these measurements, give our customer service team at DST a call.
It is important to note that you do not want to choose a boot that is bigger than your measurements. You want to choose a boot that is just slightly smaller than the measurements you obtained. The elasticity of the polyurethane will allow the hole to stretch and grip the joint tightly. If you choose a boot that is too large there will be a gap which lets in debris.
Now that you have these measurements, you can verify that this is the boot that you need. If you find that your measurements do not match this boot, go to our Universal Dust Boot page to match a part to your measurements.
Choose your design
Energy Suspension offers an alternative to the traditional round bushing. There is an octagon shaped dust boot available as an option. The octagonal boots have the same specifications and perform the exact thing. They just offer a more unique look.

The center was a bit tight on the ball joint shaft but the material is flexible yet hard enough to machine to a perfect fit. Upon torqueing it "balloonedâ€Ě nicely without splitting.verified_user Verified Buyer - Paolo Toschi - . Energy Suspension 9.13101_frontball - 5 out of 5

Purchased to install on 1979 Civic CVCC Wagon lower ball joints. The shaft hole is a perfect fit, and the skirt is a perfect diameter. These are missing a notched insert ring on the inner part of the skirt. Stock boots have the ring to keep from sliding off. I used safety wires and wrapped around the boot twice, then used safety wire-pliers to pull tight. The safety wire keeps the boot tight against the indent on the ball joint. Works great for my application!!verified_user Verified Buyer - Kaindia_1 - . Energy Suspension 9.13101_frontball - 5 out of 5
