[DML] Re: Steering rack boot installation

Changing the boots (dust seals) on the tie rod ends won't affect the
alignmnet as long as you do not turn the tie rod end on the shaft to
the steering rack. If you unscrew the tire rod ends, say to replace
the boots on the steering rack, you must put them back EXACTLY or you
will change the Toe. If the tie rods are worn/loose, and you replace
them you should have an alignment done. To remove the tie rod end mark
with a paint spot and count the turns. Put it back exactly as it was
and you should be OK.
