Tie rod ends

All of my rubber boots on the tie rod ends are trashed, but the joints seem okay. Is this a part that I can just get at the local auto parts store?

When dealing with steering components you ALWAYS replace the entire part. It is not a question of if they are still fine, it is more that you never want them to fail. What would happen if that broke off? Besides, tie rod ends are cheap. Dont forget your pickle bar!

I ended up ordering some aftermarket poly ones in the hopes that they would last longer. I prefer to smack an old nut on top over the pickle fork saves on the boots, but I guess in this situation doesn't much matter. I might go with some aftermarket rod's w/ greasable hem joints if I ever end up bending the stock one's. It's not a matter of if, but when!
