Anyone bought replacement ball joint boots off ebay for upper and lower ball joints? If so which ones did you buy. A lot of options listed.

If the boot is bad the joint has probably been compromised so I just replace the joint.

China's best! I have not looked at what is out there but I will bet 97% of it is China or Taiwan. Which means you may not get much more out of them. Hang in here for a bit and maybe someone will have a better suggestion.

If it says new instead of NOS then it's more than likely a Newstar reproduction from overseas.

The sad part is that Newstar provided parts under contract in the last years of the 151 production. The difference now is that they are not bound by quality control.And here is the ironic part of that scenario. We also outsourced the last contract of carburetors, OR Zenith did. They are the so called Taiwanese carbs.
