Do they do more harm than good? How about on a steering stabilizer?
get rid of them,I took off my old shocks that came with my truck that had boots and the shock was rusted so bad that it didnt even let it move. Since then no more shock boots
I trashed mine. no need for an 80's flashback every time i look at my truck.
They never look right anyway
got mine on.... and leaving them on....
had to to be the 4 out of 5 say..
If you wheel where lots of grit and rocks can get thrown at the dampers or more importantly the shafts then leave them on, but modify them. Cut them so that they hang from the top and are loose on the bottom. That way water & crud can't build up inside the boot.
Mine are on. I cut holes in the bottom and check them routinely. Helps keep the crud out.
Mine has had them since I bought the truck in 1998, never had any problem with crud build-up inside them and have done plenty of mud wheeling.

As Marv would say its "fluff" . Besides if you really wheel it , that stabilizer is getting smacked around anyway . Mine is creased , dented , scratched ....hmmm I wonder if Autozone will honor the lifetime on it
