    My story was very similar. I bought my replacement boot at FCP. It was OEM, but I had to stretch it, which caused a big kink and loose of power. I spoke with FCP and they were surprised to hear and we're not able to help me. They checked p/n several times and told me that they will find out. I waited two weeks, did not get an answer from help and decided to try a local dealer.
    Boot that I got from dealer worked great! I had no problems of installing it and it looked significantly longer.

    Y'all shouldn't have to be stretching boots. It's possible your lower boot shrunk from age.

    I purchased OEM (non genuine) boots for mine and they fit perfectly, but I did both upper and lower at the same time.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.
