Not Good !! If the stearingrack is leaking

By 

from Deltona , Florida

Comments about Driveworks Rack and Pinion Boot:

The part sucks!! The input hole for the breathing stick wobbles around and isn't sealed like the ( MOOG Rack & Pinion Bellow Kit) that I previously installed and which is completely sealed.
So incase your Rack and Pinion is lealing and you just want to replace the boot so it won't drip anymore, don't buy this part because it's not completely sealed. This part also doesn't come with a screw clamp.

      A:

      The website nor manufacturer book comes with that information but if you take that part number, or call your local Advance Auto Parts store they might have better resources to help you locate that answer.

    • A:

      Elbow - this connects to an air line which connects to the other boot, so the pressure between the two can equalize.
      Clamps - the picture shows cable ties, which I've seen several websites recommend using instead of traditional clamps. Or you can buy clamps separately.

  • Q:

    i have a leak on the left side of my rack and pinion boot and i notice that the clamp was worn and so i bought a new clamp for temporary but now the leak is a slow drip which is better than before i was wondering how hard is it to replace it with a new boot and would i get new clamps.

      A:

      It is fairly simple to replace the boot. You would have to remove the outer tie rod so that you can get the old boot off and get the new one one. Once the boot is in place, install the new clamps. You will most likely need to purchase new clamps seperately. Re-intall the tie rod and you are done. You will most likely have to get an alignment after the completion of the boot replacement.

      It is not difficult to change the boot. Remove the tie outer tie rod end, cut the clamps off the old boot and slide it off. Install new boot, by carefully sliding it in place and install clamps. Make sure you hook up the small tube that connects to the bellows. Now for the bad news, if you have more than a small leak in the rack, this is just a temporary fix, and your rack needs repair or replacement. The bellows is to keep dirt and water off of the steering rack, and not to keep oil in.
