    I went to get my car tracked today and for the third time I've been told the gaitor on the trackrod has split and I will need a new one. The previous one has only been on there a month!!!

    Can anyone tell me a possible cause for the car causing them to constantly split?

    oh and its only on the drivers side it keeps happening

    not lowered. They are oem parts and i have the same one fitted on the passenger side.

    It's doing my head in, would it be caused by the tracking being out or over tightening the nut on the top? or could it be something to do with other worn parts?
