Drive axle CV boots - need to buy parts

Recommended Posts

Outer boots on drive shafts are torn, but assume that internals can be saved and only will be needing boots and accompanying hardware.


Am seeing several aftermarket parts for around $12-15 with boot, large and small clamps, snap ring and grease. Just wondering whether this fits both in- and outside? If so I can just order 4 in total, R&R the drive shafts, clean and reassemble. Beats the $700-800 per drive shaft for an OEM replacement.


Can anyone confirm whether the boots for inside and out are the same?

RockAuto says rear inner/rear outer is the same Beck Arnley part number for my 2000 986 base).  .  http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=495366&cc=1364385&jnid=393&jpid=0


What does the PET say?  Or does it only show the entire subassy. as a replaceable part?

Thanks Dennis. PET does not have spearate parts for rebuilding the drive axles. Porsche only sells the whole enchilada.


At $12.50 shipped each I ordered 4 boot kits from rockauto and look forward to digging into this. Will revert.
