I notice some guys go with boots on their shocks, and some go without. What do you prefer and why?

Seems to me that boots are the way to go (unless you're talking repeated sumberging in water maybe), but I see so many shocks without them?

I'm getting ready to install my new set of Downeys and rear shocks as well, so I'm curious. :confused:

I don't like boots. Seems like they just trap junk in there. The boots that came with my shocks aren't even long enough when the shocks are fully extended!

Keep them off- If you wheel- you are more likely to trap mud , rocks& dirt inside the boot

It holds the crank pulley while you get that crazy torqued-down bolt out.

They are good for cushioning custom tools though!

Seriously, I Was JUST looking at that pic wa few weeks ago and thinking - what did he use for that handle-

I actually picked up one of these for $10 bucks


Originally ,the guy I was helping bought a chain pipe wrench from sears but the chain was a few links too short-
So he had to make another trip out to pick up a second one-


A couple minutes later - Voilah!
