Upper ball joint rubber cover
So i went to replace the ball joints on the weekend, apart from the lower joints being a right PITA to get off the taper they seemed to all go together ok. However when i got the upper ball joints assembled there is a large gap between the rubber boot and the support arm. Has anyone else seen this before? My gut tells me its not good as i believe the boot is supposed to seal against the support, but someone else (sales guy) is telling me it seals against the spigot . . . which is a taper so never going to seal well as far as im concerned.
The nuts went on to the expected height and the split pins met up at the right points for the nuts and holes, the overall sizes appear to be the same or similar as the old OEM ones i removed. Just the gap has me a little concerned, its about 10mm or so.
