If it were me, I'd replace the tie-rod end as a unit... odds are the joint won't be far behind in terms of wearing out.

However, a quick Google Search for boots, came up with this:

http://www.vwparts.net/URETHANETEBOOTS.html

Haven't used /bought them, so have no idea if they are any good... they list VW & Ford sizes.

Might be worth a shot.

Thanks for the link! Great service...they shipped same day.
Unfortuately these are not at all suitable for the large tie-rod ends on the Evan.
My ball-joints feel like new, but of course the rubber, marked "Germany 025 060 024 012," is shot.
Google is no help. Other ideas?

Hello

I'm going to have to echo FHK161's suggestion to simply replace both tie rod ends. It shouldn't be too expensive to replace them both, and then you have some real piece of mind for a while. In general, this kid of part is considered to be a wear-and-tear item, and is best replaced rather than serviced.
