Most definitely use shock boots, keeps the oil cleaner longer and helps to protect the shafts/inner o-rings from being dirty/wear out.

I have also noticed that with out shock boots the little plastic piece that protects the o-ring wears in 2 or 3 races. With the shock boot it last a lot longer.

Lasted over a year...what, do you race 2 or 3 times a year???...lol...j/k
I will have to get some and try them if they are that good. I have never had any luck with shock boots that is why I use the rocket balloons, but if the ae one work that well I will give them a try.
