If your balljoint is still working ok, and you just have a tear in the boot, you can spay some Brakelean on it to get it super clean, then apply a high quality silicone on it. I have told others to do it, and it worked. If not, you have to buy a new arm. at the oem prices, if you have to buy a new arm, you might as well shell out a couple hundred more and get a set of aftermarket +2s and have ajustability, wider stance. and more travel.

ok ill try to clean it really good ...then throw some grease in there and then silicone it ...

but i was thinking of getting a lower ball joint and using the boot from that....it looks almost the same ...do you guys think it'll work?
