I replaced my tie rods about 10 months ago, and i noticed that the outside boots started to crack after about 4-6 weeks! I replaced them with Karlyn-STI brand parts which are supposed to be of good quality... Has anyone else experienced this? I did the same job om my buddies car, with the same brand parts and his did the same thing. I thought maybe I overtightened it or something...?

they're not leaking yet, but damn!...

That is why it is better to use MB, MOOG, TRW, or FEBI. NEver heard of Karlyn-STI.

I would contact them or the store where you bought them. Overtightening does not affect the boot, only the metal parts.
