I tore a front inner boot this past week, and stopped by the dealer for a replacement today. Great news, they are unavailable as individuals for some reason, and an inner/outer pair costs $74..

I told them to forget that, I'll find another replacement. The whole CV shaft only costs $209 from Honda, I'm not pyaing 74 for a boot!

the OEM boots may cost a little more but fit is 10x better then all the aftermarket ones i have tried over the last8-10 years(moose ,and ones from ebay etc , etc ) and the rubber is too stiff and will slide off if any grease is under the boot where the clamp is ........but good luck with them

trick to that rich is boiling the rubber makes it easier to move around till it cools.

The all balls boots are the closest ones I have found to stock on the wheelers. I'm not liking these new plastic boots on the Pioneer. Instead of flexing and possibly just a hole they are getting ripped off the CV joint and mangled. I haven't had to replace too many of them yet though so maybe they will work out better than I'm thinking.

@binfordw how did you end up tearing the boot in the first place? I'm just wondering if this is a common thing that happens or if you were doing something more uncommon with your Pioneer.
