    Default R 17/12 tie rod ends dust boot.

    I have quite a free tie rods in otherwise good condition other than perished dust boots on the ball joints.

    Has anyone found something to replace them? A part number would be good as simply presenting it at the local Clark Rubber outlet is not productive due to them carrying only limited stock.

    Covs have many sizes with the spring band

    I tried an aftermarket one on my 12 which didn't quite fit because the inner size was slightly loose, but it literally cracked to pieces in less than a year anyway. All the ones I've looked at are very visibly poorer quality compared to OEM with irregular moulding and poor quality 'rubber'. Absolute rubbish. From memory it was from one of the main motor accessory shops such as Supercheap.

    Had I kept the 12 and couldn't find new arms (such as from a Dacia) I would have tried somewhere like Covs to see if another car's joint has the same dimensions because then you'd get OEM quality. You'd need a friendly sales rep though.

    I'm pretty sure the Type 2's were the ones I tried - from memory the plastic bag had a tick list "Type 1", "Type 2" .... and next to these, squares which were ticked in felt pen according to the contents, but no branding. However, mine were not from that seller so don't let my post scare you off - it's just a matter of keeping an eye on them if used.
