My Ride: eat's cars.
Half-Shaft question

after reading numerous threads about the vibration i was getting, i put my car up on stands and took a look around. I pulled the wheels and all of the boots on the front were good. I thought, while i have it in the air, why not repack the boots. I went to my local bmw dealer and asked for four clamps to get the job done. *they dont sell the grease......

I ripped the drivers side apart and went to put it back together only to realize the dealer gave me clamps that were too small. my question is, can i use regular hose clamps to finish this job or do i have to wait until the dealer opens on monday and do it with OEM. i can't see and problem but thought i would check here to see if someone has already been down this road.


ps i attached a picture of what i am hoping to use.
