Default Steering linkage dust boots needed

My first thread. I've had to redo the engine cradle due to salt corrosion. It's a 2001 with 5 speed manual. I've encountered some difficulties and need some help. I was redoing the steering linkage and found the dust boots (some call them bellows) on the ends of the steering assembly are brittle and will fail soon. After many searches, I've found that they are only available if you buy a complete steering assembly. I only want to replace the boots. Does anyone have a source for these things? Thanks in advance.

That's probably going to be a dealer only part. You can also get an aftermarket one. It probably won't fit as well as the original. http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...0254&ppt=C0203

That part will most likely came with the rack from the dealer as well. Aftermarket or used may be your only hope.

I have a 2002 that I also need the inner tie rod boot for. I was told by the dealer I'd have to buy the Rack and Pinion to get the boot. The problem with the after market is most don't have the vent for the tube that run's between the two boots. My question is the vent tube really needed?
