power steering leaky leaky

How much do yall know about the power steering rack on a 98 prelude? The passenger side is leaking from the boot. I know nothing about it. I like to do most things myself but the car is so low its a pain. Anyway..it leaking bad.when i mush the boot in, the fluid just pours out. Do i need a new rack? Also how hard is it to replace the boot? The driver side is torn in half. thanks for your help in advance. I am getting it ready so I can sell it.

yea i've had the same problem its not that hard to replace the boot. you have to undo the bolt, ah hell i forgot what its called... the thing used to adjust the toe alignment.. what ever its called. undo the bolt at the hub, and unscrew it from the rack itself. just order yourself a new boot and the clamps for it. i believe there are 4 clamps. a good tip, as you unscrew it from the rack, count how many turns it takes to undo it completely. so when you tighten it you can tighten it that many turns. and it should be exact. and make sure the jam nut is good and tight. i wouldn't attempt this if you dont have an impact gun, otherwise its gonna be hell trying to get that ball joint back on... is it the tie rod?? is that what im thinking of? damn im at a loss for words today.
