WTB 19mm Strut Nut Socket and Front Strut Dust Boots

Hi guys looking to see if anyone has a 19mm strut socket that I can borrow or buy?

I plan on installing my ST-XA Coilovers this weekend, but cannot get one of these in enough time by ordering online.

Also Iím looking for the dust boots for the front struts on a F30. They can be new, used, or if you know where I may be able to purchase them locally, please lmk.

Iím located in Whittier but willing to travel a little for these items. I will order both items from FCP if not found locally by Sunday morning.

Thank you!

You might want to consider a pass through socket from harbor freight. I used this set when replacing my front struts and it worked fine.

Iíve considered these as a last resort. I just wanted he other style socket because I could place my torque wrench on it and torque to spec.

+1 on the pass through socket set. They sell them at Lowes/Home depot.
Good plan B to dissassemble and reassemble while your 19mm from FCP is being shipped/processed.

I've got the 19mm one but don't think you can get it in time for Sunday.

Where are you located? Would you be willing to let me borrow that socket or buy it from you?

I'm up in Dublin, 94568 (Norcal).

They sell for $15. And I double checked that I do have a Schwaben 19mm version.
Looks like this...

Hey guys sorry for the late reply... I ended up using the pass thru set from HFT to temporarily get them installed and ordered the 19mm strut nut socket, should arrive on Monday.

Thanks for all the quick assistance, y'all are awesome!
