My tie rods on my IFS would need replacement. I was looking in the Downey Catalog and I saw some Polyurethane Tie Rod boots. Are these any good? Or is it better just replacing the tie rods. Do I get OEM tie rods? Or are there aftermarket tie rods out there that are better?

I've heard they do help out with wear. Iws goingto try them, but forgot to order them. I think they work with all available tie rods for the IFS trucks.
I'll be ditching all my IFS crap that's only 6-7 months old in a few weeks, I might be able to help you out?

If your boots aren't ripped don't replace them, but if they are it's alot cheaper than buying new tie rods. I've got them on my truck. They seal good, not as tight as factory but good enough.

Did you have to remove the original bushing to make the Downey bushings fit?
