I have reviewed all of the posts on aftermarket driveshaft boots for the ball and trunion shaft and can't seem to find one that corresponds with my shaft diameters.  The big end where the boot goes on mine (56 dodge coronet) measures 2.30" and the small end measures 1.375. I have looked at all the dimensions on rock auto for the neon and others that y'all have listed but they seem to be to large on the big end and too small on the little end. Has anyone actually used any of these neon boots? How did they fit?  Thanks.

Big M typed this (below) over at the CCC that these e-Bay rubber boots didn't last very long for him.

"Wayne,

Is the kit for the front driveline trunnion joint from E-bay? If so, I will warn you that the rubber boot will not last very long. I installed a new trunnion in my '59 this spring, and upon arriving back from my trip, discovered the rubber is completely disintegrated.

---John"

Here's the link blow...scroll down towards bottom of page and you'll see where the ball/truniion discussion comes up. There's a good alternative to the e-Bay boot as well. Check it out.

My problem is that all of them I have found are too big on the big end. I guess I will have to go to Bernbaum. Also, I am missing one needle bearing after counting them all. I have 123 and it takes 124. Anyone have some old ones they could mail me?.

I used a cheap split CV boot from O'Reillys and cut it down to fit. It lasted about 7 years before it came apart.

Were those the glue together kind? If so, you could cut it down to size and still get it to glue back together?

Looks like the Christine Car Club Forum no longer exists. I guess people love Zuckerberg instead. I assume that the neon and Omni boots were the outer ones, correct? I am going to attempt to pull the boot through the B/T housing as shown in the FSM.

check if you can buy original OEM boots, those re-pros are hit or miss...

Yeah, I used the Omni/Neon outer boot, part number Dorman 614-001. It came out great with high quality rubber and....cheaper than the repros with bad quality rubber.
