My acura dealership is on the other side of town, so I often call the honda dealership down the street for me if I need little things.

anyways, I am doing my brakes this weekend so I call the guy up and ask how much new dust boots are.

He said that he does not sell them. They only come in a kit, 2xboots, a seal, and a ring. $42ea . You would buy a kit if you want to refurb the caliper.


No pun intened, but give me a "Break". Will it be the same story if I call Acura?

Do your existing boots require replacing?

I just called to get a taste of how much they would be, and if there were in stock.

That sounds like Honda is being reasonable. Unless you guys are talking about different dust boots? idk. Anyhow, usually those things are sold in a brake calipur rebuild kit. I doubt your brake calipers need rebuilding but I am often wrong. If you have uneven wear on your brake pads, and you've been using a torque wrench, you might need to rebuild your calipers and definently bleed your brakes system.

pretty much anywhere you go, the only way you're going to find a caliper dust boot is in a kit to rebuild two calipers. if autozone carries it, it'll prolly be about $10 for the kit
