RE: 200T Suspension Problem

Hi Igor,

Is the boot for the rack a dealer part, or is there some other source you know of?
The boot on my rack is ripped, but the rack seems ok.

BTW, I also have a Tornado red '89 200Q. They do look nice don't they? It's a pity

I installed a rebuilt rack on '85 5000s 5 years ago. Cost ~$275+core deposit 
from GPR, rebuilt by ZF. No leaks so far.
I installed a rebuilt rack on '89 200TQ a year ago. Cost $50 for the seal kit, 
$32 for the boot, rebuilt it myself. The best part: no cores to return AND I got 
to keep my own rack, which I trusted. No leaks so far.
