Without a complete disassembly and cleaning, if you just put new boots on the rack the grit will soon wear away the soft bronze bushings inside and attack the gear teeth of the rack and pinion themselves. The result will be that you will have to either buy a new rack or get a used one and go through the service process on it that I will describe here. It's a no brainer. Either do it now for the expense of some grease and a set of boots or do it later with the added expense of buying a rebuildable rack. This is going to be a greasy messy operation so have lots of shop towels and cleaning solvent at hand.
There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time. Skip to main content. Do these parts fit your vehicle? Find out now.
