I've got a 6 cylinder engine with an automatic transmission. The power steering boot is shot and I feel it would be cheaper and easier to just remove the system completely.

Yes, but you need new steering linkage when you remove the power steering.

What boot are you referring to?

Theresa is an accordion like rubber boot surrounding a piston that pushes and pulls on a knob on the steering tie rod.

You can get the replacement on line if you look hard enough. They are not too expensive for the valve.

I assume it is leaking and you have no power assist?

It is totally shot. It is broken loose on both ends and just hangs there.

I would look at repairing it. It may not be as much as you think.
