Default CV Boot / Steering Rack Boot problems

I got under my car to swap my oil pan with the 06 STI pan. An I knoticed the CV shaft boot was ripped as well as the steering rack boot. Both on the passenger side. Iím going to replace the CV shaft boot but Iím curious if these gaskets on my steering rack are shot. Please let me know what you think.

Hard to say. You have so much grease and road grime around the rack you can't tell.

Is the rack leaking?
If not, then leave it alone or buy a steering rack rebuild kit from Subaru and rebuild it for peace of mind.

Dude do yourself a favor and replace those boots. Its a quick job. You can use zip ties instead of those junky metal clamps that are there stock. If the Steering rack is in good shape you are preventing any damage by replacing that crap.

if it was me I would replace all the gaskets and put new boots on while your in there, saves you the pain if one of them starts to leak 5k miles later. better idea to do it while its taken apart so you don't have to go back in. those gaskets are not much either, definitely worth replacing.
