Hi there,

I remember enquiring about the ball joint in Mitsi dealership and was told that they are not available separately, but both Camskill and Viamoto were selling one: http://www.viamoto.co.uk/proddetail.php ... ubishi+FTO

The steering rack gaitors that I got from Camskill were aftermarket from some crowd in UK pretty generic looking. Looked exactly like these: http://www.viamoto.co.uk/proddetail.php ... ubishi+FTO

Hope this helps

Universal gaiters are grand. I'm pretty sure i used a pair when i had my steering rack done.

+1 on universal gaiters. Cheap stuff on ebay, neoprene, minor cutting required. Stretch it over the tie rod with the cone provided.
