The biggest problem is simply getting the damn inner and outer rods apart so you can slip the boot off and on. In my case there was no way short of a torch that the nut was coming apart (you can see the nut in the photo for step 10). Hence the hacksaw.

If you have a torch or bigger guns than I do you can try just getting that nut off, but if it fails, you may just have to cut and replace the whole tie rod.
