DIY  Higher Angle Red Silicone Inner Boot          

You install this boot on the Inner (differential side) joint.  Skill level – advanced.
          Includes adapter ring for OEM inner joints, grease and clamps.

This can help if your inner boots are running:
         at moderately higher angles (due to lifts, raised shocks, leveling kits, etc.)
         are rubbing on themselves or
         have longer travel

This red boot design has more convolutions (ribs) so it handles angles better.

Needs additional clearance over original boot of  +1” diameter, +1” length.
          Please check the clearance before ordering.

 No warranty on these boots.

Higher Angle Red Silicone INNER Boots                    MODERATE LIFT – GREAT

  • Proven custom solution for moderately lifted vehicles.
  • This boot is installed on the INNER joint (differential side).
  • This boot must be CHECKED and may need to be ADJUSTED (extra clamps are provided) after installation to work for your specific truck setup. Each truck, lift kit, shocks, etc. combination is unique and custom.  All axles with Red boots come pre-adjusted for the majority of trucks. However, the Red boot still needs to be checked and may need to be adjusted for your setup.   See instructions below.
  • For lifted vehicles the Red boot will last longer than neoprene.
  • The Red boot will help if your axles are running at higher angles (lifts, raised shocks, leveling kits, etc.) and your old inner boots are:
    • at moderately higher angles
    • are rubbing on themselves
    • have longer travel
  • This Custom Inner boot design has more convolutions (ribs) so it handles higher angles better.
  • The silicone material is better in extreme temperatures.
  • The Red boots are NOT designed for extreme axle angles (lifts over 3.5”)
  • The Red Silicone boots are clamped along the axle shaft and not in the original position.

No warranty on these boots.

  • CHECKING AND ADJUSTING THE RED BOOT. With your truck at normal ride height before you re-install skid plates etc. (and using all normal precautions for working under a truck).  On axles with Red boots they come pre-adjusted for the majority of trucks. However, the Red boot still needs to be checked and may need to be adjusted for your setup.
    • CHECK for:
      • adequate clearance between the boot and all suspension/frame parts (½” ).
      • no boot ribs (convolutions) rubbing on themselves. Need 1/8” to ¼”  of clearance between the closest ribs.  Roll the truck tires ¼ turn and check again – repeat x3.
    • ADJUST the boot,
      • remove the small clamp and slide the boot so the ribs don’t touch.
      • You need 1/8” to ¼” of clearance between the closest ribs.
      • Don’t stretch the boot too far!
      • Re-clamp the boot with the extra clamps provided.

No warranty on these boots.

? There are a few products that can help condition boots to help them last longer (especially neoprene). These products can be sprayed on boots periodically:

  • 303 UV Protectant Spray
  • Mclube Sailkote Spray
  • Silicone spray (CRC, Berryman, etc.)
