drag link end boot replacement

My drag link end boot tore when I installed a drop pitman on it, so I replaced it. Problem is, the tie rod boot I replaced it with did not seat properly, so the grease just works its way out of the boot. Does anyone know of any particular boot that will fit better than the ones at O'Reily parts? or is there a trick to getting these things to seal properly?

Do you have a picture?

many of the aftermarket ones don't fit that great, never had any problems as long as there is plenty of grease in there.

Do what some of the Currie guys do; hold the base of the boot on with a small zip-tie.

That is a great idea. I'll give it a shot and see if it works for me. I'll post back w/ pics if it works for me.
