Transit Drag Links

Looks like the boots have perished on mine so need replacing.

Anyone got suggestions on the best place to get them? Looks like there are lots on Ebay for about 20-25 a pair.

Thanks

Stu

Just get new boots? Seems many such parts come with rubber boots that have a short lifespan. But replacement boots usually last much better.
Amsteer is a decent supplier, or https://www.balljointboots.co.uk/ both been good for me.

Try your local motor factors. When fitting the spring clips use a couple of short lengths of brake pipe to spread them .

Thanks, I've just ordered a couple of new ones. I don't think its worth the cost difference to replace the boots. They are 12 years old now so probably ready for a refresh.

Need to check the bottom ball joints as well.
