    Dose anyone know what the inside diameter of the axle boots are, on a 2013 S 85, for the rear CV joints ?

    The driver side, rear wheel walked out due to a broken lower control arm and the inner CV joint at the drive unit separated, destroying the boot only. The axle is still fine but I need to find an appropriate boot to repair the issue.

    you can't run string around the CV for the circumference, then divide it by pi to get the diameter?

    Clearly, measuring it is optional and what I will most likely have to do. Just seeing if anyone had access to OEM specs. I will use a Dial Vernier Caliper Gauge type, dial indicator to take the measurement if required.
