    Hey guys,

     

    The rubber boots on my ball joints and tie rod ends are all cracked. I need to either replace the boot or the entire part. Can you buy just the rubber boots?

    Can also get direct from Nissan. Taarks.com probably also has
    the JUN S15 (broken) - 000hp
    s13 ca18de two tone silver/grey - 2hp

    previous
    s14 [ZENKI] (built) - 350hp
    s13 ca18de two tone silver/grey - 2hp (back in my arms)
    s13 two tone unrego - soon to be daily (was simply never to be)

    IF YOU DONT THINK TWO TONE S13'S ARE THE TIGHTEST SHEET THEN GET THE FRACK OUT OF MY FACE

    I went to Nissan to get a price on some ball joints, as expected, they will only sell the entire lower control arm with Ball joint already fitted for the bargain price of $545 each! The tie rod ends were nearly as bad - $220 each - bloody ridiculous.

     

    I have been to Repco, and they can only supply the entire Ball joint, but not the rubber boot on it's own - didn't bother getting a price.

     

    I called Wilkinson Suspension in Bayswater, and they have quoted me $115 to supply & fit new ball joints to the existing arms, as long as I remove the arms and take them in - no problem - that's what I will be doing!
