Default Ball joint and tie rod end boots

Hi guys got a few questions regarding front suspension and steering on my NB PAJ.


All my ball joints and tie rods rubber boots have turned to a sort of chewing gum. The joints themselves are fine and have been greased regularly. So ideally id like to just somehow replace the boots. As im up for a roadworthy and don't want to spend a small fortune on all the joints , Does anyone know of any thing i could use or maybe there is a car with the same joints that i could use the boots off?


If any gen 1 owners have photos of the ball joint boots that would be great too cheers


Thanks for any help

I think I heard somewhere that repco have universal ball joint boots that should fit, maybe give that a shot?

So it turns out that spending the money on new ones was probably a good idea , the boots i bought from supercheap that were supposed to fit the car dont , as none of the stock joints have grooves for the boots to seat into . Ended up just buying all new tie rod ends and ball joints . Live and learn i guess.

The boots are set into a ring that you hammer onto the the joint , hard to explain but there is no groove for the more traditional ones to seat into , got the tie rod ends from repco on sale , they are of lower quality then the stock ones though which pisses me off "global" brand , 2 year warranty though so should be ok . Getting closer to finally getting the car on the road .
