    Default Ball joint boot query

    Hi guys. I drive a Prado120 series with around 230000km on the clock and have just replaced all the steering and suspension bushes as well as the front wheel bearings and the upper and lower ball joints. The left front lower ball joint boot is higher up than the right hand side one (see pictures attached) but I have been assured this is ok and the seal is tight even though I can see a bit of the bolt on the left and not the right. I'd appreciate some advice whether this is something I should worry about or not. Trying to avoid getting stuck in the bush with a damaged ball joint due to mud, water or sand getting in. Thanks Karl
