Hmmm....that is actually a very valid point. Ok, so I'm a non-p*ssy April->December, full-blown p*ssy from January->March.

Your boots are probably rotting from sitting all winter.

i replaced all the other with greasable ball joints (3) but need to do the drop arm at some point.

Yeah, must be the climate-controlled comfort of snuggled in the garage for the winter with other Rovers and classic cars that cause my rubber boots to wither away .

Agreed, I'm not sure why more people don't do that, I like having 2 pair of easily replaceable ends. Never understood the defender style

How do these solve the problem? The inner boot will still crack and dry out, right? I thought the problem is pinching and poor material quality. My 110 still has good boots, probably due to no pinching and better quality material.

Ok, quick update...the above were garbage - there's not even a "lip" on the bottom edge so I'm not sure how these would stay in place with any sort of motion.

I ended up having an old past-its-prime tierod end laying around, so grabbed the boot from that...which *appears* that it could be part #214649 (the part has a "3025" stamped on it, much like shown here and in the below pic on the left). However, Paddocks also has #A0408 which they do state is actually for the drop-arm (here and in the below pic on the right).

Anyhow, the long and short of it is that the #214649 (3025) that I scavenged from my old tierod end DID work great on the pitman/steering drop-arm. I'm going to order up a few of the #214649 and #A0408 anyhow from Paddocks just to have on hand. So while the A0408 looks more like the one that came off my drop-arm, the 214649 works just fine and I see no reason this can't be used for the drop-arm as well as the tierod end.
