When you recieve your boot, open the box and throw the install tool directly into the trash where it belongs. Go on and get yourself a Vice and a PVC pipe piece to fit around the boot and on to the hardened ring. You'll be done in 5 minutes tops. The only reason this has recieved 3 stars is the garbage install tool as mentioned earlier, I burned through 2 "tools",( which are made of a cheap plastic from dollar tree), following the directions both ways with a vice and without, they both ended crushed and the boot not pressed on.
What should have been a quick easy fix turned into hours of frustration. The install tool collapsed immediately so I was stuck figuring out how to install without it. Ended up using a piece of pvc and forming it to fit.
Bought the steer smarts yeti xd tie rod and upon install noticed the boot on the driver side was missing. Contacted steer smarts and they immediately sent one out. Can not get better service than that
I’m sure the boot will work just fine, but the installation tool just collapsed on its self.
Boot looks good but the install tool is trash. I had a spare bump stop laying around which fit over the install tool, laid everything on the ground and was able to push the boot into place.
