Hi all, as usual I come with problems....
Two months ago I installed Moog tie rods and a drag link on my truck. The passenger side tie rod came with a rubber bushing/spacer in place of a normal dust boot, I suspect this is to reduce/ stop tie rod roll, this is the part number "Moog DS1071 Tie Rod End".
Just two months later, this rubber spacer is torn and blown out, and it needs to be replaced, Here is what it looks like
I'm trying to brainstorm to figure out what to replace it with, but I'm coming up empty handed. I have no issue fabbing something up if need be. The only idea I have it to buy "The Cure"
, and place that on the drag link where it meets the tie rod, and put a normal dust boot on the passenger knuckle. I would swip swap spots because that is a hard plastic, and the steering does need some give.
I'm open to ideas, any and all.
