[DML] Re: Steering rack boot installation

If the tie rod ends are tight (no play and they aren't flopping all
over the place) then there is no need to replace them, just replace
the boots. Clean them up nice first. Lubricate them too. Before
replacing the boots on the steering rack you should also make sure
everything is scrupulosly clean. Any dirt will grind up things inside.
If the boots have been torn for a long time and it is realy dirty the
rack should be pulled, cleaned thoughly, and relubricated before
putting the new boots on. If the rack is loose and sloppy you should
consider trading it for a rebuilt one. Driving a Delorean is a lot
more fun with a nice, tight steering system! There should be no play
or lost motion in the steering.
