These ball joint dust boots fit many older vehicles with largish ball joints, or track control arms. The main exceptions are vehicles that use pinch bolts instead of nuts on the ball joints; as the shank is usually over 16 mm (boot 4 should fit those).
Unfortunately there are no official application lists available for any boots and no guarantee they will fit any specific models. But using our knowledge and feedback by kind customers, we have attempted to list some fitments below. Fitment List ©2009.

(It seems as if there are some Cortina ball joints that have bigger rubbers, approx 45 mm, as the ball joint is a bigger diameter on the base. These would seem to be the originals that are riveted on and are ones we cannot supply. These have been fitted to aftermarket Cortina ball joints, such as QH). Boot 7 may fit or according to a customer, apparently Chrysler Valiant ones fit. Although he didn’t know what year.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you supply clips to retain the boots?
We supply all boots with the relevant cable tie wraps. From experience the boots usually hold nicely onto the joints without metal clips and often retain better without them. Unless the replacement boot is exactly the same size as the original, fitting or refitting a metal clip can pinch the boot and leave a gap for grease to escape and water to ingress. Plus some metal double row metal clips are very difficult to fit.
The UK MOT obviously has rigid guidelines, although a failure or pass is often down to the individual examiner’s interpretation. Examiners have been known to have said only damage matters and if the compression holds the boot in place, it isn’t essential to have clips. If you are in doubt, please speak to your MOT testing station first.
