WHY ARE RACK AND PINION BOOTS IMPORTANT?

Rack and pinion boots, or bellows, seal the inner tie rod and the rack and pinion shaft. They keep moisture, dirt and other debris particles sealed out, preventing contamination and damage to the steering rack components.

Rack and pinion boots face constant exposure to road debris, contaminants and thermal cycling. The primary cause of part failure is puncturing from road debris. To ensure optimal part life, requirements for rack and pinion boots include:

High- and low-temperature resistance

Puncture, abrasion and chemical resistance

Resistance to extension, compression and bending fatigue
