Front Strut Dust Boot Replacement

Recommended Posts

Pulling the front end on the GT3 to get at a dead horn... found the dust boot on the front strut torn.  Has anyone replaced one of these?  I had a competition suspension set up from Jae Lee at Mirage in San Diego and don't want to mess it up, but need to replace the boot.  Can I just remove the mounting at the top and drop the suspension and replace the boot from the top?  ANy help on this is greatly appreciated!

Hi Oscar.....  I've not done this (yet) myself on my 6GT3, but, if you do disconnect the top of the strut, you will have to realign the front end.  (to state the obvious).

It would be a good opportunity to check the alignment all around to, since our cars are so sensitive to alignment.

Craig,

 

Here is what I got back from Jae:

 

So, when you remove the top mount from the car, take 2 of the 3 nuts off.  make a line thru the bolt and the top mount so you can put it back to where it was.....  should be ok if you put it back to where it is...... 

 

I pulled off the dust cover to look but it the bolt is recessed so I am not sure where he is talking about making the line, LOL..  I'll get clarification.
