So I went riding over the weekend and for the second trip out in a row, I completely sheared my Right, Rear, Outside CV Boot, right at the band clamp. The first time, it was the stock axle, stock boot and clamp. This time it was an aftermarket replacement axle that I had swapped in, keeping the stock one for a spare after replacing the boot. Both exhibited signs of something rubbing on the boot until it wore through, then completely separated. I checked everything possible that could have any remote chance of contacting the boot under any suspension position, and there is nothing on the machine that could cause this. You can see in the pictures the suspension in the normal loaded position, and then when jacked up in the air and full extension. The fact that it was two different manufacturers of boots, clamps, and axles, should rule out those as the cause. This means there is some environmental aspect causing this. Heat doesn't make any sense, as the other boots would have the same issue, and none are. It honestly looks like a rock got wedged under the boot and just wore it away, but what are the odds of it happening twice in a row to the exact same location's boot? I do recall a few other individuals here mentioning tearing boots, and I know at least two said it was this same location. I had thoughts that somehow the lift kit was causing this, but I can find zero evidence to point to that. I ordered a few more boot kits and some CV Savers as well, hopefully they will help mitigate the issue. Maybe it is just a coincidence, but it's still really weird. I'm curious how many more of you have torn boots and which ones you have torn.
