Crdavis1, my apologies for letting this post slip by me. :duh: I am usually very thorough about replying to posts and welcoming new members. I will take the hit on this one.
First off, if it is not too late to welcome you to Tractor Forum; I indeed extend my hearty welcome! :friends: :cheers:
If the rubber boot you are referring to is the steering ball joint boot; it should be able to be replaced by splitting the ball joint and replacing the boot. Usually, it is a spring tension type seal to hold the grease in and the boot on the ball joint.
I would suggest contacting Ronnie Bowman at Tractor Smart. Tell Ronnie that Randy from Tractor Forum sent you and you are a Tractor Forum member.
This boot is not a frequently replaced part and Tractor Smart does not list it on line but I am certain Ronnie can get you the part at a great price and also provide very good instruction and advice on how to go about replacing it as well as addressing any special tools or supplies that may be required.
Again, please accept my apologies for missing your post. I hope you will give us another shot and be a regular posting contributor.
