Installed a inner and outer rear CV boots last month. They both are aftermarket. The inner boot is shriveling up like it needs a air vent in it or something. Any ideas or a quick fix for this? Thanks

Some air must have escaped past the boot clamps.
Check it over real good to make sure there isn't a pin hole in the boot.
Take your time and pull it back into it's original shape with your fingers. It'll go, just takes a few swear words and time.

I've seen this a bunch of times, never bothered to figure out why it happens. Just slide a grease needle, or any hollow needle, up the axle shaft under the small end of the boot to allow air to get into the boot.

was out riding this afternoon after about 1/2 hr of riding the boot reshaped to normal. Weird, must have something to do with temperature. Will try a very small pin hole and see if that fixes it.

Slide the needle under the boot at the clamp. Don't make a pin hole in the boot that will allow water to get in.
I have had many do that and never really worried about it.
