So I have pulled the front axle and bearing housing in order to rebuilt the front steering/suspension.
I cleaned and re-booted the DOJ and CVJ. However, the clamps that came in the boot kit are different with each kit. One has 'ears' and you buy a tool to squeeze the ears together. Well... that did not work !
The other boot has a slip in groove and the steel cable appears to have enough length to go thru the groove twice. Now what ? Try to pull it tight and then bend it 180 degrees back over itself? What ever!
I'm going with the heavy duty plastic zip tie.... like Loyale 2.7 did. How do I pull that zip tie tight enough to ensure I have a good clamp? I did it by hand... trying to hold the square end (the locker end) with a pliers. I got it as tight as I could... but is there a better way or a tool to tighten it?
Or is hand tightening 'good enough' ?
