    Are they reliable? Haven't used this vendor before!

    I get parts from them all the time... better than paying the exorbitant shipping from the suppliers in the UK to Germany.

    And the work they’ve done on my brake calipers is everything you could wish for. They came back looking like brand new... anodized in gold just like original.
    And all within two weeks. I’ll post photos later.

    No affiliation with them, just really satisfied with their work.

    If it was leaking out of 1 side you probly had a split rack boot as they dont run seals on rod ends . I have just rebuilt my steering rack with a pair of new boots and a brass bushing for the left side as my plastic bush wore out.

    Just a hint, when a shop performs wheel alignment after installation.
    Pay attention, that they loosen one of the boot clamps. While turning the track rods they twisted the boots on my newly rebuilt rack and didn't notice it. What destroyed them after the first maximum steering lock. A twisted boot will be immediately pinched by the innards where track rods and rack are connected.
    Had to replace the boots once more. At least the shop paid them.

    Dinoparts: It seems, that they have gotten significantly better with the new owner. Though their parts prices are still in the higher range. (all prices on the website are without VAT)

    Best Regards
    Martin

    Hi Martin, thanks for the tip! I'll be sure to watch out for that. I'm doing the alignment myself.
    And, you're right, Dinoparts isn't by any means the cheapest place for parts... I just like that they're fast and reliable, and here in Germany. Just ordered the rear CV boots from them as well... the last winter project that I'm trying to get finished before Springtime gets here. :)
