    Front Shock Boot Replacement

    I'm in the middle of my front shock replacement, and on one of them I cut the boot like an idiot to get at the shaft so I could cut it... later realizing I should have slipped the blade in between the upper mount and the top of the boot to cut the non-hardened threaded part... and I'd still have my boot intact.

    Anyways I want an OEM boot but the p/n on the boot (22114311) comes up as discontinued. I got a Driveworks boot from Advance but this only has the boot and the bumper, it doesn't have the thick metal part in it like the OEM one, which I believe is needed to properly bolt the upper mount to.

    Any idea on what the new p/n is?

    I am guessing that the part may be discontinued completely. Every now and then the F-body specialty vendors will have some NOS parts in stock so you may want try shopping the web.
