That was just a routine import maintenance regarding undercarriage parts. Power train was another stack.

That doesn't even look like the right boot. Here are some pics of what I had in the garage.

I think originally GKN was the supplier for the Type A axle and Loebro for the type B axle with hard boot but it seems like the more company's merge together the more quality goes out the window.
