I purchased a new pair of rod ends at a LOG years ago. A friend of mine was in need of them but when I got them out of the box, I discovered that over the years, the rubber boots had totally disintigrated. Rather than bin a pair of brand new rod ends, I found new rubber boots for them.

Saves on having to realign the toe-in etc if you don't have to unscrew the end off the track rod. :lol:
