Re: [DMCForum] Steering rack boots: Lube for replacement?

Thanks for the info. I'm tearing it apart first thing in the morning
so I'll check this out. I've got a variety of new parts to install
here, track rod ends (from you), lots of new bushings from Toby, rack
boots, etc. If there's play in the thing then I should look at a new
(rebuilt?) one from DMCH for $350 I'm guessing?
