These urethane boots are available from Energy Suspension at $2.74 USD per package of 2. My order was $5.48 including free shipping.

Excellent Steve. Can you simulate 5 years of use and let us know how they hold up. Say sometime next week?

Well Greg, they are not new :

I recognized the PKG and went to the shop I have two or three kits of Their Sway Bar End link Bushings and the Tie rod boots .
I figured I would need spares but I have not replaced any of those parts since I saw you at a show years ago.

:encouragement:-----------

Keoke - It's great to hear that you have some tie rod boots in your shop.

That may have been a decade ago. Time flies. Sounds like the parts last, which is good.
I purchased the stock ones from one of the usual sources and they cracked with fewer than a couple of hundred miles. I purchased the stock ones again, from a supplier who said he was familiar with the problem and he guaranteed them to last. We'll see if they do.

Patrick - did they last a year?

Another source for Energy Suspension brand urethane boots and bump stops is Summit Racing. I have used their tie rod boots on a couple of my British cars over the years and they have held up quite well.
