    Torn power steering boot

    So I noticed that the passenger side Boot on the steering rack was torn when I was doing a transmission/oil change. The local Subaru shop suggested doing both left and right boots which makes sense to me. They quoted $240 dollars for parts, labor, and alignment after taxes. My question is how difficult of a job is it to replace the boots? Any tips or directions? Thanks.

    its generally a pretty straight forward job which isnt to difficult, the worst you will run into is a seized castle nut on the tie rod end due to rust. How many miles are on the vehicle? If you mark the tie rods correctly before you disassemble than you might be able to do without an alignment, however doing one cant hurt. Personally as far as tie rod boots go I wouldnt replace both of them unless both where torn, however if the tie rods themselves are bad that is a different story. This is my opinion of course....
