Question about replacing steering rack boots
Posted 11 July 2009 - 12:42 PM
The passenger side steering rack boot is torn and the drivers side boot looks like it's about to tear. I am planning to replace both boots.
It appears to me that I should be able to replace the boots without having to remove the outer tie rod end from the steering knuckle by simply threading the tie rod out of the tie rod end (of course only after carefully marking the threads and counting turns during removal).
Is this correct ?

ha, no joke. i created a thread just for that reason not too long ago. fought with that thing too.
I would say the most difficult part was getting the large end of the new drivers side boot into the groove in the steering rack. There was very little room to work and it was just a tight fit.
