Question Turbo tie rod boot fitment

So, what is the trick to make boots collapse right?

Apparently those came with the kit are more sturdier (material and design) than OEM boots, and when fully collapsed at wheel lock, they twist and collapse in the way that the boot gets past its fixed ends, instead of flex sections taking the compression (hope you guys know what I'm talking about.) I did not put clamps on the ends yet (which would help 'inversion', I'm sure), but looks to me that these boots are not designed right (at least for 914 applications.)

Any comments from those with turbo tie rods?

Kurt

I know what you mean. It's clear, but I never watched it lock to lock. But something is wrong. It should accordian up and not push it self over the end. Where did they come from? There was some dicussion a while back about some bad ones.

I bought the kit from somebody's project, brand new and OEM (930 xyz...... P/N on the label.) At least I got good deal, but hope to improve the condition. My rack gear is off the car, and I can feel boots are adding some resistance at full turn (you would probably not feel it when on the car but.)

Yep, mine is Lemford too.....

I have a feeling that material got changed for service parts. This should have been an issue for design validation/ OEM production, especially for 930 caliber.
