Angry Outer/inner boot ZL1

Hi,
My Name is Norton from Germany.
I drive a 2013 ZL1.

Last Tuesday on my 3rd Inspection,
i saw that the inner boot ( rear axle, right side)
Is damaged!

If i choose my car at gmpartsonline there isn't
an inner boot for my car ...
Just the complette ( 22953759) axle assembly !
But the axle is okay !

There is the outer boot (92228290) and i think
the outer is the same like the inner ...BUT
the next Problem is that the partnumber is
the same as the Camaro SS outer boot!
When i choose the ZL1 at your Vehicle,
there is written ...
outer boot right W/ZL1 (at the Part List) ! That's what i need !(I hope)
But in product details is written without ZL1 !?
I know that the SS and ZL1 have different axles.
So what i have to Do ?
Choose my car and order the outer boot W/ZL1?

The part # is correct for the outer boot on the ZL1, the inner is not listed. Maybe someone who works at a dealer (parts counter) will chime in.

IMHO and personal experience of replacing many axles; the amount of time that it takes to rebuild the seals and clean it all out you would be money ahead to do a new axle. To get all the grease cleaned up and redone is dang near impossible to get all of the impurities out and they will cause a failure in the seal if not properly cleaned.

I know the axles are expensive, especially being shipped to Europe haha. But, more bad than good usually happens when only replacing CV axle boots.

I agree 100%. Last year I found a tear in the driver side axle outer boot and it was spraying grease every where. I bought what I thought was a ZL1 specific boot replacement kit but it was for the SS. Contacted another dealer who said they do not have a boot replacement kit for the ZL1. So I bought a generic kit and attempted to make it fit. What a major PITA to tear apart the axle. It didn't work so I bought a new axle and installed it and call it a day. Check ebay for used axles. They are much cheaper than new and should work fine.
