Remove the boot covering the end of the steering rack, There should be a thin flat washer between the tie rod and the steering rack that is flattened over the end of the inner tie rod end. Pry up the flattened points, unscrew the tie rod and reinstall.
The boots on a rack-n-pinion are there to keep the inner tie rods clean. If power steering fluid is in the boots, then the seals on the rack-n-pinion are leaking. At this point you need to either have it rebuilt or buy a new one. I am a A.S.E Master certified automotive technician.
between the inner and outer pinion bearings.
It seals dirt and water out of the inner tie rod.
The inner tie rod bushings are in the steering rack assembly and can not be service without removing and rebuilding the steering rack.
The inner tie rod is part of the Rack and pinion set. VERY expensive.

If they are not available separately you may have to replace the rack and pinion.

If you have rack and pinion steering, the steering gear will need replaced.
Elevate the car on a jack. Remove the nuts in the inner and outer tie rods. Loosen all nuts in the bulkhead hole cover. Take the lower joint offÊthe old rack and pinion. Detach the fluid pipes and mounting bolts. Remove the rack and pinion. Install the new ran and pinion and replace the mounting brackets. Connect the power steering fluid pipes. Align the lower shaft.
The shim between the inner bearing and the pinion is critical and if it's lost you need special tools to set the pinion depth. replace the bearings and seal with an new crush sleeve thighten the pinion nut until the sleeve crushes and you can't move the pinion up and down. Then very slowly tighten the pinion nut checking the rotational torque. You will need an inch pound torque wrench, when the preload is correct it should take between 20-25 inch pounds of torque to rotate the pinion. If you get it too tight you need to replace the crush sleeve and start over. Proper bearing preload and gear mesh are critical.
Remove wheel and disconnect outer tie rod from lower control arm. Clearly mark original position of outer tie rod end on shaft and remove outer tie rod end. Remove rack and pinion boot revealing. Unscrew inner tie rod from rack and pinion assembly.

Easy. Remove the plastic inner fender well liner. You'll be staring right at it.
A: If the pattern shows toe contact, use a thicker pinion shim. Toe-thick, heel-thin. A:1 If the pattern show that the meshing is too close to the outer edge of the ring gear, a thicker shim is needed. If the pattern is too close to the inner edge of the ring gear, a thinner shim is needed.
Try adjusting the gear depth on your pinion gear. Also if your truck is a posi then you need to add the Mopar Gear Lube. It has additives for the posi setup.
