Original Inner TR head is covered w/white plastic sleeve (2003 Chevrolet cavalier). Should I cut it off, or just apply the wrench around it? How was it torqued down w/that sleeve? Thank you for the film.

Olena Erhardt says:

Do you need to apply any lubricant inside of the boots (where they contact with the IT Rod)? For rubber protection. Something like Red Rubber Grease or Silicon Grease. Thank you for the film again, really good and informative.

Olena Erhardt says:

Could you tell what did you add on the thread of the inner tie rod before installation?
