Steering Boots & Seal Kits
A steering boot or steering rack boot is a rubber casing used to protect a CV (constant velocity joint) from wear and tear. Over time steering boots themselves crack and tear as the corrosive effects of salt, ice, rain and snow takes its toll.
The cost and hassle of replacing a pair of steering boots is a fraction of replacing a joint so it's wise to make sure that they are in decent condition. Failure to pay close attention to their condition may eventually result in the whole axle needing to be replaced.
