  • Steering Rack Boot Question

    I have read several of the posts giving tips on installing new steering rack boots but I have a couple of questions. TRF states that #90 gear oil is used to slosh around inside the boot for lubrication. What is the best way to accomplish that. Also how do you identify which boot goes on the passenger and drivers side?
    Thank you.

    The boots only fit one way, the one with the larger diameter hole goes on the drivers side, I just packed the inner ball joint with grease, no gear oil involved. I don’t think I’d use any oil, it will dilute the grease that goes on the rack. And the rack gets some grease as well, you can do that by replacing the plug at the top with a grease fitting and giving it a couple strokes on the grease gun. Or if you have it apart smother the rack with grease before you reinstall it.
