Is a dust boot required

when i had the car lower, the shop that did the install did not put the dust boot on the new shocks and springs. Is the dust boot necessary or am i better off without.

Well it's there for a reason, to protect the strut rod from dirt, grime, road debris, etc. I'd say it's necessary to prolong the life of your struts.

Mine doesn't come with it, so I didn't bother to take them apart and put one in.
