Is there a procedure that you followed or care to share one? Also, is there a kit for the rubber boots? Mine were torn.

TIA!

The OEM are not rebuildable. The ones I have are from hotchkis, they're supposed to be stiffer with a better balljoint, unfortunately crap rubber boot, which I had to replace to avoid damaging the ball joint. I bought the boots based on the 2 diameters of the existing boots, I assume you can do the same with the OEM. The only thing noting down when changing end-links, is to do install/tighten the lower nut when with the suspension loaded; install the top nuts, put wheels, drive car on ramps, then install the lower.
