Front shock boot/bellows

Are there any decent parts available? Monroe lists one, but the Amazon reviews are now exactly confidence inspiring.

I'm replacing my 5100's as they're both leaking badly. They've gone 5 years and 80k miles, but I feel like a decent boot to keep the schmoo off the shafts would help them live even longer.

I'm also interested. I bought Fox 2.0 shocks for my van and they do not have boots front or rear.

I was hoping for something specific, but I'll take a chance on the tough country units for $10. I'll report back on how they fit.

Fwiw to anyone else, my rear 5100's gave up the ghost much earlier. I think it's because their boots were vented at the top and allowed road crap into the boot (they were very dirty). On my replacements, I sealed the top vents and cut new ones at the bottom
