Its about a 2 minute fix with a flat head screw driver. Tighten the clamp on the boot!

Pick your year but if you order here you must get the rings it's the only way they will stay on, trust me.

Got mine from RiffRaff diesel. Good price and choice of colors. (Not that color was the selling point for me, they don't have KR tan! LOL)

For your current boots, remove them, clean well, spray some hairspray on the connections, tighten down.

I had to buy new ones cause the one near the turbo shredded. The 04's come as a set of 4.

I would try simply tightening the clamps on the existing boots before you spend the money for new ones. You certainly don't have anything to lose...

I found that tightening them up really wont solve the problem. The boot on the turbo output gets oil on it and after the first slip off you can not get it to stay on. I know I had to put it back on 15 times between Yuma Arizona and riverside ca. not fun when it's 110 out and you have to climb on top of a hot engine on the side of the high way. solution mr bob's hoses they have a liner to resist oil saturation and come with new clamps. They are pricey about $275.00 for the set of four (that's for a banks inter cooler set up) not sure about the price for stock. They have a life time guarantee and are rated for 100 psi

Riff raff diesel boots here, They've 30+ lbs of boost on my truck. Do the CCV mod(search function) and they will also keep your new boots nice.
