Are you asking about replacing a torn rubber mini-boot on the control arm?
Like the rubber boot shown here?

I looked here and the boot itself isn't listed as a separate product.

That's for a 2000 s70 .

But if you google "rebuild control arm boot" you can find lots of pictures of boot kits for other makes. it would be nice if you could source just the boot if it is something replacing. Meaning.. if the joint wasn't worn out by the time you noticed the torn boot.

Yes ! that is it, the joints are still snug but moveable with grease in the pockets, seems stupid to replace a complete arm with bushings when all you need to "maintain" the service life ia a boot ! Thank You for the reply-

You may find these on Ebay perhaps, but I wouldn't touch a no name brand.

Maybe remove one from the junk yard? These are usually kept in place with a spring - a bit tricky to remove it without piercing the boot
