Why are my rack and pinion boots deflated?

Asked by Feb 07, 2015 at 09:26 PM about the 2004 Chrysler Town & Country EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just installed a new(remanufactured) rack and pinion on a 04 Town & Country.  While getting the air out of the system I noticed the noise of the boots crumbling.  I was watching the fluid level while my wife turned the steering wheel back and forth for me.  The boots are wrapped around the inner tie rods or clinging on to them.  I've never seen this before and I'm just curious about what I should do next to return the accordion style life back to the boots.
