    Hi guys, have a question: are replacement grease boots available for C body front end parts? I need the boots for the upper and lower ball joints. I have seen B/E body boots but none for the C body cars. I can buy the tie rod boots locally from the auto parts store though. Thanks for any help, John.

    They B-body boots are most likely the same as yours.

    Good luck finding OEM boots I looked high and low and they are scarce, I found a source for a reproduction set of boots for ball joints and tie rod ends and they wanted 160 bucks for the kit!!

    Do you remember where you saw that reproduction boot kit? It is pricey but I need them. Thanks John.

    The shop that has my Polara just replaced all of those boots & they didn't have trouble finding them. I'll be there in the morning & ask them where they bought them.

    I would be interested too, I hope they aren't the polyurethane type that has become popular, they are here at this address and are cheap if you just need a nonoriginal type, they are longer lasting though,

    When it comes to the original OEM style this is the ones i found,

    Just for the ball joints?
    Cheaper to buy the buy the entire ball joint, wouldn't it?
