    Front ball joint boots wanted

    Hi all
    Got my car back from the dealers after a service and they said the front ball joint boots are starting to perish.
    They can't get them individually as Honda only supply the full arms for around 200 quid each...
    Is there any where that sells them or equivalent Honda car which uses them?
    Thanks a bunch!

    Hi.
    When I did mine a couple of years back I took the old split ball joint boots off and went to my local factors and they sell them separate and just matched them up on size and only cost a couple of quid.
    If you also need track rod ends they match up to early Civic ones. Same trick, remove and match!

    A true sports car should be designed so that when you sit in it you can put your arm over the side and touch your knuckles on the ground.
