I seem to recall a metal plate under the boot when I cleaned up my ball
joints. I left them in and replaced the boots with polyurethene from one of
I have KYB gas-a-justs. They seem to ride just fine. I would think your
springs would have much more influence on the stiffness and handling. I don't
know if you would notice much difference between the shocks.

But when I get down thru the ball of grease and expose the ball joint surface,
there is a washer right above that, larger
enough ID to clear the shaft, small enough OD to fit under the boot. Is this
a remnant of the old boot (some sort of metal piece that rode at the
top of it), or is it one of parts #19/20/21 in the diagram, and is meant to go
between the b/j lower surface and the mass of grease, acting as some sort
of metering device?
Any preference as to using the Gas-a-justs vs the GR-2s I had purchased for
