Ok, so Im still somewhat new at this jeep thing and actually having a suv that I can do regular maintenance on.

So me being a newbie, I crawled underneath my jeep and noticed a busted grease boot at the draglink/pitman arm connection, excess grease at the draglink/passenger side wheel & my zj tierod at driver wheel. I may have overgreased these things a few weeks back and at least 1 blew but the others have thrown grease all over my wheels and brake rotor shield after offroading it this weekend.

Is it best to just replace all these boots or what? Tierod was installed in may with lift.

My boots are pretty much all blown out from my PO... I just make sure I keep them greased up and I haven't had a problem yet. I plan on just upgrading to the currie currectlync system in the future anyway.

Since you installed the zj tierod I'd look into replacing the boots. I'm pretty sure you can find them on quadratec.

Pretty cheap too..

Why isnt the TJ Wrangler listed as vehicle fitment with this part number? 9.13101

And Autozone only had red ones, insisted they didnt carry black ones anywhere or any other store (but yet i pulled it up on my phone after leaving on their site), advance auto guy looked at me like he had no frickin clue what i was asking for or what a tie rod was, oreilly doesnt list my jeep fitting it.

That part that I linked, fit perfectly on my tie rod ends. I have a 1998 TJ with factory TREs.
