Question Ruptured grease boot replacement

Does anyone know how to replace the ruptured boots that are associated with the drag-link and tie-rod? on my 1995 full size bronco?

Re: Ruptured grease boot replacement

I went to the dealership today and answered my own question. The greasable dust boots on the tie-rod ends are a permanent manufactured part of the tie-rod and drag-link ends. That means that even if you have nice and straight, undamaged links/rods, you have to replace them if you want to have new dust boots!! They are not so expensive however, $69 times 3.
