    The 2016 mustang outer cv boots do not fit, to big.

    Can't help with the boot size but I did recall seeing the CV boots fail on another IRS setup. Cross over to the 65 Coupe and look at what John George did on his white #48 He was suggesting putting Zip Ties in the groves of the boots. apparently they must expand at speed. about half way down on his site he shows the boot failure, temporary fix and the suggested fix.

    Hope that helps

    Found site that gave boots by size, ended up with boot for a toyota t-100. A.L.O. cv boot kit 1318 but was told they are out of business. Looked like GM K1500 or DODGE Ram 1500 maybe work, but did not have one to look at.

    Hi Tom, Re: Alignment............

    What values did you end up using? Is yours Power Steering or Manual?
    Thanks,
    Tom

    We used shelby-shelby R mustang values. Power steering, have 265/35/19 on front so need the power.
    The person i used has been doing this for a lot of years on custom cars up to big rigs, an old time shop.

    Hi Tom, How's the fresh alignment feel on the road? I looked at the Cobra R numbers and they're not too far off of what I ended up using - other than Caster, since my car has manual steering.
    Congratulations on the Wife Approval, too!

    Tom V.
