Upgrade the protection for your steering system tie rods with replacement boots made from flexible and highly durable polyurethane.

- Made of Hyper-Flex™ performance polyurethane
- Resistant to under vehicle fluids such as: oils, coolants, road contaminants, etc.
- Replaces the original, short lived and typically too soft rubber mounts and outdate
- Soft enough to absorb vibrations for street use yet rugged for racing use

If you've ever had to replace a protective dust boot because its rubber construction deteriorated or became torn from rock hits and road grime, you understand the need for material that is extremely flexible yet tough. And if the torn boot went unnoticed for a period of time, lubricating grease for moving parts leaked out and road grit worked its way in - causing rapid component wear and the need for expensive steering system part replacement. Energy Suspension provides an effective low-cost solution to the problem of undersized factory rubber boots with the Tie Rod Dust Boots. Kits are available with a small or large number of boots, so it's easy to fit all the vehicles you own with them. There's also a choice of sizes and colors.
Durable polyurethane boot construction offers the flexibility of rubber without the tendency to tear or degrade from exposure to road grime, salt, and oily contaminants. Additionally, polyurethane resists shrinking and becoming harder in extreme cold temperatures better than rubber does – which immediately eliminates a large percentage of boot failure. Replacement of existing factory tie rods is not necessary unless those parts should happen to be worn out also. Whatever the design of your vehicle's steering system, Tie Rod dust boots are designed to fit your make and model like original equipment. Energy Suspension proudly manufactures all components in the United States, and backs them with a 2-year warranty against failure due to manufacturing defects.
Founded in the early 1980s in San Clemente, California, Energy Suspension® has specialized in the development and improvement of polyurethane, and has always been a believer in finding ways to use it to create products that improve automotive performance. Since the company's earliest days, their mission has been to be number one in quality and product lineup when it comes to polyurethane bushings, mounts, and other vibration-dampening grommets. Today, their worldwide presence and industry-wide respect show their efforts have paid off. Energy Suspension has achieved many firsts in the world of polyurethane suspension products, and on our website we offer many of its products at budget-friendly prices. In an independent test done by Mopar Muscle magazine, a late model Dodge Challenger Hemi was fitted with Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings throughout all steering and suspension components. While the ride was still comfortable after the change, the improved Challenger's lap times dropped consistently from 76 seconds with OEM rubber to 74 seconds with the polyurethane bushings. Their more resilient nature resisted crushing and warping under pressure - in turn, leading to reduced body lean and better tire grip which allowed faster speeds around turns. Considering races are often won by a fraction of a second, it's easy to see the significant benefits that Energy Suspension bushings can bring to your car or truck.
