I had buggered up one of my ball joint boots a while back. I was informed
(by Bob Pastore I think) that the boot is not available separately for the S
cars, but that the boot from a 5000 will work. I had a couple of these
lying around so went for it. The stud on the S is stouter than on the 5K so
slipping the boot over the stud is a little tight but all went well. The
retaining "springs" for the boot are a bit of a bugger to get back on. Upon
Bob's direction, I went to Sears and got a set of their picks. I think the
set of 4 cost around $8. Without them, reinstalling the springs would be a
futile task at best.
Drop me a line if you want me to dig up the part number for the 5K boot.
