1995 Integra LS 4 door. Both, Part 11 (Tie-Rod Dust Seals) are to be replaced. Part 7 is the OEM single-use $14 clip:. Two clips are required for the job. I have seen videos with zip ties and wonder if it would be reasonable to use a standard hose clamp? $30 for two clips seems excessive, however, if there is good reason to use a single-use clip then I'd like to understand the reason to use it over a garden variety hose clamp.
I am particularly interested in the responses from those who have installed these seals / boots: if you have done this please state this in your response and any lessons learned \ details. Thank you
