Could some rubber strip like material or even a bicycle tube not be used as a shim?
I do not believe the boot will stay on with that option. It needs the groove (like OEM) or a ridge to retain the boot..

Got an email back from Quinn from 74weld, they have a batch of housings finishing next week with a larger boot mounting flange. I ordered a kit with the new housing for my hoss 3 rack on order.

I had received an email as well stating that they were making changes to the boot mounting flange as well. This will solve the problem I was having. A somewhat easy machining fix on their part. A difficult process to have recognized as an issue. I wonder how many were shipped out? If a person was using the Icon tie rods it would have been fine as the boots are sized for Hoss 2.0 diameter. If trying to use the Ford Performance tie rods and boots the boot flange was too small and could not be crimped tight with the supplied 77mm clamp. All is well, I should have a new part next week.

New part has arrived and it is a work of art! Just a beautifully machined part.

The Icon tie rod boots are sized for the Hoss 2.0 steering gear and the boot flange is quit a bit smaller on Hoss 2.0 unit. Mechanically they are fine, it will be whether you can stretch the boot over the Hoss 3.0 flange. If you are buying the billet cap for the Hoss 2.0 then there is no issue.

I have two extra boots if anyone destroys a boot in the process. They are free if needed.

GOOD MORNING
I received my DORMAN ties-rod. They found the solution to compensate for the diameter of the HOSS2.0 VERSUS 3.0 good quality DORMAN better than FORD PERFORMANCE AND OTHER.

HI
THE COMPLETE DORMAN TIE-ROD SET PART NUMBER = TA87445RD

AND JUST THE BOOTS IS= PART 29882RPKRD,

GO TO AUTOPART NEAR YOU ORealy, NAPA, CARQUEST ETC...
Or phone directly to DORMAN INC. PA. ( it's a big compagny)

It's a good quality boots.
The day I need them I'm going to find them and get them, because this is a piece that can be broken or torn. But not this morning.
