Yes

Be sure to check the tie rods boots and replace them if they have any cracks/rips...



Most stores do have them, but I'd suggest getting one with a lifetime warranty cause they will rip over time.

Looks like it is leaking power steering any ways, just get a new rack.
This is the correct diagnosis for the problem at hand. Personally, I would make the shift to a manual rack. Its less likely to require replacement of the entire rack if the bellows boot (what that boot is called) ever cracks open again.

both mine were like that. Take wheels off and separate outer tie rod end from knuckle. Then remove and replace. I did outer and inner on both sides. Just get an alignment afterwards.

Eh, depends where you live and the weather. My boots looked 10x worse than that on the CRX. Rack was fine, inner tie rods were toast.

Just take the outer tie rod off, pull the boot, and see if there's a bunch of dirt on the inner tie rod joint. If there is, it's prob a good idea to replace the inner tie rods
