    So i took off a couple of days this week to get my CV boots replaced. Had to cut off two bolts.... which was easier than I thought it would be. Found a replacement curved washer for 6 bucks. Now this..... i am assuming that this is the cause for the inner CV boot tearing in the first place. Repair or replace? In Birdmans helpn guide his look a little misshapen, but not this severe.

    It's very soft metal just make it round again with a curved former (round bit of wood) and a hammer.

    Yes it is a very soft metal so no problem to do the wood and hammer thing. I bent mine during the process of cleaning up the grease, the unit is heavy so even just putting it down a bit abruptly will deform the collar.

    It is possible the old (non-oem) retaining band was cinched so tight it cut the rubber and deformed the collar, but more likely just bent during all the comotion during the uninstall.

    The collar deformation can't really be 100% avoided. Even putting the car on jacks risks doing this, as the half-shafts (without the weight of the car to keep them nearly horizontal) will angle/bend down to the point they are touching/bending the collar inside the boot. Basically it's an original design flaw.

    Identical new ones are nearly impossible to find. You can either use the ones for the 328 (similar, but different) or pull out a hammer and form it back into place. But as noted, even new ones will get bent eventually.

    I have not tried. I did get the extentions with plans to do so in future. I think i have to lift it up and put it on jack stands, then add the extensions. I got the suv extension.

    So far. It is alot heavier than I thought it would be. But it seems to work well and set up was pretty easy. Have you checked out YouTube videos to see what you get?

    I have the same lift for my Mondial -85. A bit heavy as Donnie says, but when you are under the car it feels kind of ok. I would be worried if it was too light.... I have the 12V version and it works great. Lifts very fast, no problem with just 12V.

    That's just the stamped piece that the boot clamps onto, right? If so then it's no big deal as long as the boot clamps tightly. Toyota MR2's have a similar inner joint design and I have done about 200 of those.

    Aaron, you are correct. It is and I have been using a 2.5 diameter dowel rod and mallet to get into a "more" round shape. As someone commented before, the previous clamp may have been responsible for the deformity.
