CV boot clamp source?
xi front axle had the much discussed vibration problem on acceleration/hills. I opened the inner boots (outers replaced 75K ago) - cut off the clamp - which apparently is an Oetiker ear clamp... Was dry - repacked with grease.
Tried using heavy duty plastic ties to close ti up - but it doesn't seal well enough - grease has emerged from the boot during the test drive. I know the clamps come with the boot kits - but where can I get just the clamps - have looked everywhere. I can get a bag of 100 from some supplier... useless. The only thing I've found even close is on ebay - search "CV Joint Boot Clamp Kit" - looks good - but does anyone know of any other sources? None of the usual suspects have them - pelican, summit, etc.
