I have heard shock boots hold in more mud and crap and cause the shock seals to fail sooner than if you dont have boots at all.

Is this true? Anyone actually had experience first hand?

My shocks didn't come with boots and I'm wondering if I should source some out or not bother.:dontknow:

I personally never put the boots on unless a customer specifically asks to have them put on.

I have always found them to hold more crap than they prevent.
