Swivel Ball Gaiter, yes or no?

Getting ready to rebuild my 73 S3 swivel balls. This would be the time to add gaiters.
It looks like they could keep in as much junk as they keep out, so not sure if they are a good idea.
If it is a good thing, would leather or rubber gaiters be best?

I like the old style leather parts.

Land Rover werden vererbt, Sankeys sowieso! I told the old guy that weeks ago. I think his cheese is sliding off the cracker.......

Not quite like you say, they can keep in MORE stuff than they keep out and you can't inspect the swivels once gators are installed.
