The tie-rod boots on these Fabtech kits don't last. I'm on my second pair. Anyone running a different brand such as Moog? Any part numbers?

HA, I was just about to make a thread. I just greased my TRE's and my SECOND set or boots have rotted. The grease just goops out! I am worried that the grease has run out, leaving my TRE joints somewhat dry and causing them to wear faster. One of those babies lets loose, you are in trouble... HEIM STEERING PLEASE!!!

And....STFU you love your kit! Besides, its not the TRE's its just the rubber boots.

I also have the ripped Tie Rod boots on my fabtech. Someone needs to come out with something... Does another lift company make a better TRE?

I cant wait to put my Coilovers in so I can get rid of the ungodly contraption I have there now. The fucking strut creaks like a mofo when it hits a bump, and the TRE boots get grease all over my shit. I want HEIM steering like right now, JASON @ GMR you need to look into this bro!

Ok, talked to Jason and he said he could make us HEIMs for 550 shipped. Kinda pricey but his quality of work is pretty damn good. Im gonna order some soon :D

not sure if you can use other tie rods since the holes in the spindles are bigger than stock. The stock tie rods dont fit tight in the holes!
