I’m having the same problem with CV boots on my RF self destructing and curious as to whether Chris or Bill found a solution. Help!

Indeed...

I used these: https://www.kartek.com/parts/empi-86-9301-porsche-930-934-or-935-small-rubber-cv-axle-boot-for-8693020-or-9345ssbf-boot-flanges.html

With these: https://www.kartek.com/parts/empi-porsche-930-steel-single-axle-boot-flange-for-86-9301-cv-axle-boots-38-flange-lip.html

And these: https://www.kartek.com/parts/ideal-63mm-to-85mm-diameter-narrow-cv-joint-axle-boot-or-hose-clamps-516-wide-sae-size-44.html

and some of this: https://www.kartek.com/parts/red-line-cv-2-synthetic-cv-grease-1-lbs-jar.html

Completely disassemble and the CV's and clean all of the grease out of the spider and cage and everything else... before loading in the new grease.

You might think it not necessary to replace the flanges, but do it. The boots don't like the flanges my car originally came with.

All the above info assumes you're using the 930 output flanges.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for your help Chris, received my order this week from Kartek and installed all new boots which seem much more relaxed than the GKN boots.

Glad to hear it Jim. Make sure they are extended enough that the peaks of the pleats don't touch as the axle spins and you should have many happy miles- at least I have!
