While replacing my tranny filter I checked out all my tie rod ends. All tight but rubber perished. Anyone replaced the boots-- if so do you have the part numbers of the boots you used. Many places offer either poly or rubber if you know the dimensions. Could pop them off and measure- just thought I would ask first-----and find out if they worked.

I've done it a number of times on my car and others. The modern boots seem to be some sort of vinyl rather than rubber and don't seem to last that long at all. Can't help with a part number I'm afraid as my local motor factors sells them in numerous different sizes and I just got the ones that are the correct size. You'll need a ball joint splitter like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/NEILSEN-TOOLS-CT1578-JOINT-SEPARATOR/dp/B0044ZRTWE as the fork type will damage the actual ball joint.

Thanks Gilbert-- I have one of those. I was hoping the poly ones would last longer. I have to order online since my small town only has a Franchise parts place with a small selection of bits and tools.
