Maybe you'll have better luck with the rectangular rubber boot than I did. It tears at the hole. So I bought a cheap replacement at Pep Boys or some similar auto parts store and it didn;t last at all. Went and bought a new one from Hurst thinking it was a quality issue. 2 weeks later it was tearing. Went to a leather (actually vinyl) boot and trim ring from Lokar purchased at Summit. It's nice and shifts are easier. I didn't realize how restrictive the rubber is. Maybe that's why it would tear so fast.
