how to do I get rubber dust cover boots on a Moog Lower ball joint?

I did a search and the most common answer is to buy parts from another company (like Energy). Thats not what I want to do. Id like to use the ones I have so I can get this put back together.

Does anyone have a trick or tip to getting the rubber dust cover boots ona Moog 6145T lower ball joint?

i have a sleeve that came with my balljoint press that is just the perfect inside diameter to push the boots on.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Try some silicone spray lube perhaps. They are a very tight fit.

Nov 68 Van Nuys. 327 floor-shift-auto, Frost Green and not much else when new.

Sleeve or pipe that fits the OD of the boot is the only way I ever did them. It has a metal ring molded in it to keep it on once it's seated.
