I am getting ready to do this and have found a link that explains it pretty good.

What grease to y’all use if any? Do zip ties hold together for the boot? Other tips?

you should use silicone grease where the boot slips over, and the tie rods are already greased up for you, so that should be about it. I just used some slim black zip ties and its done the job. Make sure you flatten all 4 sides of the lock washer so it doesnt come loose!

What Bill said and make sure the boot can spin freely on the tie rod for the alignment or tighten it good and bring two more zipties to the alignment shop.

Finally did it! I was able to reuse the spring band that holds the boot to the inner tie rod. I did use a zip tie for the rack end of the boot though. It is almost impossible to put a divet in all 4 sides of the "lock washer" with a steak so used some vise grips to divet in some of the sides. My butt chassis dyno tells me things are more firmed up in the steering now.
