The site has a reference which gives the dimensions of the boots inner seal
edge, height and so on. I ripped off the old ripped boot and put calipers to
the joint. The fit was tight and the boot was nice and rip proof.

Let the group know what you find and let's get a group buy going. The front
sway bar bushings are a good upgrade as well, but you have to cut a piece of
flat stock and drill two holes in it, as the back of the stock bushing is
not flat faced like the upgrade.

I have spoken with them in the past, and they will make anything if we send
them a template. I was considering a larger front (center grill area) engine
bump stop. Also, stiffer tranny mounts would be nice (the 2Mennett ones are
still soft)......and control arms, and subframe bushing and....... They made
a kit for the BMW 2002 which was very very well done.

Let me know if anyone in the group is willing to do the measuring leg work.
I'm swamped these days.
