DNX408 Drive Shaft Boot Install

Filed under: News,Tricks and Tips — Tags: , — Stuart @ 11:09 am
The DNX408 comes with rubber boots to guard against dirt and water ingress and keep the CVD joint running nicely for a long time.  Getting the boots on without damaging them can be tricky though if you don’t use the proper technique.

To fit the boot properly you need to use care and don’t rush. Use a liberal covering of silicone (diff or shock) oil on the dog-bone end of the drive shaft and place the boot over the end – work the cover over slowly poking one side of the pin through the hole in the top of the boot.

Oiled and ready Well lubed dogbone is essential Ease the driveshaft through - pin first. Work one side out first

Slowly pull the boot to stretch it around the dog-bone  and other side of the pin.150wideTTT-solidgrey

Take it slow..... SLOW! Work the boot over the other side of the pin

JOB DONE!  Done!

Voila! No more torn boots.
