Boots & Gaskets

Boots & Gaskets

Also known as steering rack boots, steering boots are rubber sleeves that protect constant velocity (CV) joints from wear and tear, while steering gaskets keep power steering fluid inside the system. Car Parts 4 Less stocks steering boots and gaskets for every car.

Steering boots are made from flexible rubber. They cover each CV joint and create a seal between the rack and pinion, and the tie rod end. There is one steering boot on each end of the steering gear. Each boot's job is to prevent dirt and debris from clogging up the CV joint. Steering boots can crack due to constant use over time. If the CV joint is soaked in oil, this is a key sign that you need a new steering boot. Without proper protection, your CV joint will also crack. In extreme cases, you may have to replace the entire front axle. Meanwhile, faulty steering gaskets may result in the loss of fluid. This in turn will reduce hydraulic pressure and make it hard for you to turn your wheel. Want to prevent these issues without breaking the bank?
