I must be missing something.

I don't see anything in the way of these boots, except perhaps the tie
rod ends (which I'm also replacing). Last time I had the car up in the
air and the wheels off, I also didn't see anything in the way. Looked
like a simple matter and others have told me you just slide them on.
What am I missing?

So, once I get the boots on, I need to fill them with gear oil? How do
I do that? There obviously aren't any openings, and they're just held
on with clamps.
