Hello again-
Looks like I need to replace my passenger side power steering boot asap (just bought from Centerline).
Any tricks/experince/feedback the experienced can offer that my make the task easier?

Always appreciated!

Replacing the boot is a matter of measuring and marking the position of the outer tie rod with respect to the inner tie rod, and then breaking that joint to slide the boot on. In the past, I've had trouble crimping an oetiker style boot while the steering rack is in the vehicle, so a worm style hose clamp or metal zip tie, while not ideal, may be in order on the rack side.

Understoood Graham and thank u. Yeah...I'm sourcing some stainless metal zip ties that are narrow enough.
Should be fine.
