Shock boot is a perfect fit on '85 K10 D-shaft, even covers the zerk.
Looks good, too.
I like the look of it but I heard that it traps water and mud inside. What do you think? Can you buy just one boot?
If you use your rig like a hunting dawg, yes you'll need to service it. With or without, you'll figure which is more work. All the big mail order places have them by the piece, walkin at 4wheelparts. ~$5
They were standard from the factory on some models.
I was checking for fit. I won't leave a red one on there, looks too much like something else "hangin down thar".
I was just surprised at how accurate the fit is.
Seems to me that it would fill with mud and or water, probably making it off balance at higher speeds. But there is only one way to find out. It would look cool though.
I dont even like shock boots on my shocks couse they trap soo much mud/ water. Of couse that was while I lived in Germany, I dont think I would have that much problem out here.
Good cheap tech though
Ya, I'm only gonna wear one cause I've convinced myself mud is not worth it unless its a dedicated mud-truck. Water's OK, if I cared to drain it, just give it a squeeze.
Otherwise, its exactly like factory, "dust boot".
just because the factory used it doesnt mean its a good idea. for sand runners, i can understand. but in all other terrain, bad idea.
