Smile Tie rod end - rubber top

Hi - I need to replace one of the covers on the drag link and would like to find just the cover. The closest I have come is through Rockauto, by purchasing the complete tie rod end. Is there someplace that I can purchase just the cover at a reasonable cost?? Ford wants to sell the complete drag link and NAPA is the same.

Thanks

You can not buy just that one part, it comes as an assembly. You may stop by a auto shop that does front end repair and ask if they have any laying around off of tie rod that they replaced.
They mat even save you one on the next job.

I made caps from an old inner tube. Cut to size, wrap around ball joint. Used a hose clamp to hold it on. Easy, fast, will last and $0. I grease every oil change.

About 3 years ago I bought a pair of the rubber "boots" at the Ford dealership. They were about $330.00 for the pair. And for that price they threw in 2 tie rod ends and the tie rod.
