hi JeremyHi Drew,
Flying Spares list an Aftermarket shock boot, for all years of Arnage/Seraph. Part: ARNDAMPBOOT
Judging by their installation instructions it's going to be a right pain stretching them over the shock.
The factory don't list the boots as a replaceable item.
From IETIS, those lower shock absorber mounts are torqued to 130Nm (I think). Probably original, so done by the Crewe Factory Gorilla....hi Jeremy
Appreciate your reply - and yes, nothing fitted to a Bentley is easy - did you investigate whether any after market silicon boots existed other than those from FS ???????
what of the front shocks ?? any thoughts on those mate ??

I did look for other boots. No listed alternative replacements, although 1 poster used 'dirt bike fork gaiters'. I couldn't find any of those with the correct dimensions.
My fronts look OK. Rears only obviously torn when extended, when all weight off the wheel.
hi knphausen56Just had mine replaced on my 2000 Seraph. The aftermarket ones are no good because they are soft rubber and will split almost immediately after installation.
John Palma has a source. Call him and ask.
Hi Drew, the aftermarket ones are indeed soft and split.hi knphausen56
I will email John Parma
But are you saying the aftermarket ones from Flying Spares and Introcar are soft and split ?
Wheres the one you put on your 2000 Seraph are OEM and supplied by Palma?
Have i got this right ???
