shock boot installation.

hi, is it possible to install the shock shaft boot without removing the shaft itself? (i have the stock shaftes without removable end. )



are they stretchy enough or will they break?

i dont think so but you may be able to stratch it by using needle nose pliers and doing it like a boot but I have never tried it to know first hand... that is how i would attempt it tho

Lube it up good, they will go, most of the time. It is a better idea to take it apart and replace the boot
