  1. dust boots for lower control arms

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Did anyone replace ball joint boots on lower front arms? So far the only exact match I found in USA is Febest's VWBJB-001. Besides relatively high price, their quality seems to be quite poor. I'm surprised that no one else sells this size.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I did a search but still didn't get all my answers yet ;) I went for an oil change today. The mechanic showed me that both of my cv boots are torn and one of them is out of grease. He quoted me $560 for new axles + labor (non OEM parts I assume). My question is that how do you know when you...
