Default Catastrophy replacing Control Arm

Well, maybe not quite a castrophy but in my present frame of mind it kind of feels like one. But to the point.

Was in the process of replacing the right control arm, which has turned out to be a lot more trouble than I figured it would be. In the process I managed to tear the rubber boot over the bolt that connects to the steering knuckle.

The control arm is a Moog CK620010. Do those folk sell replacement boots? If not from Moog are they available from aftermarket sources?

Thanks.

RVC

If you are talking about the ball joint, yes replacement boots usually are available.

Advance Auto sales them. If your local store doesn't keep stock, you may have to wait a day or two.

And here's some pretty red ones.

Amazon has them too with Prime express shipping. Just search for "ball joint boot".

Thanks guys! Yes, it was the one over the ball joint. And a big thumbs up for the response of the day. "And here's some pretty red ones." Don't know why but that made my day! Thanks Handy. Pretty cute.
