    These boots don't seem last. They were made of rubber and have fallen apart.

    On each of the five 2nd gen LX Escorts I drive, the boots have always held up okay. I have had to replace three of the power steering racks - due to having some play at the rim of the steering wheel, but the boots on the old ones were still in decent shape ; i.e. no cracks or tears, not mushy.
    I have had to replace a couple of sets of the bushings that hold the rack to the subframe, since they got oily any worked out of place. I always replace those when I replace a rack assembly.
