I've also been talking with an aftermarket cv boot manufacturer that has product that might fit, and wants some angle measurements and to know where the rips are occurring. Years ago when I put the H&R springs on my car it dropped significantly, and the cv joint angle was quite steep, but now I can't find the measurement. I just put Eibach springs and the drophats on my car, and am going to take some measurements.

For comparison, can someone give me some measurements from the ground to the apex of the front and rear wheel well with stock springs and with H&R springs? That way I can jack my car to those heights and measure the cv joint angles and compare them all.

Also, if your boots have ripped, where did they rip? In the valley of the pleat, or at the ridge?
