My 17 gtpp is mostly a track car and I have noticed that most of the dust boots have a lot of heat related damages
Any sources for better dust boots?
Thanks

I was just looking into this yesterday. OP Mustang has upgraded dust boots but I haven’t heard any feedback about them.

Yes, I saw them
Usually race calipers don’t have dust boots but street car do have them
I got a set of boots and seals made ( in China) by/for Raybasto and the boots appear to be silicone
Do you know if the factory boots are rubber or silicone?
Obviously you will think that Brembo would use silicone but they are built to Ford specs, so ......

I’d consider them to be consumables.

Ok, so I replaced the dust boots with the Raybasto kit
A bit tricky to remove them with a small screwdriver without damaging the calipers or pistons. Had to take the calipers to my work bench
The Brembo were indeed silicone and carry the part number 20 48 72 44
Never had a caliper easier to bleed....
