2006 Honda CRV with 175000 on the OEM suspension. I replaced the front and rear shocks/struts and outer tie rods, but think I messed up on the tie rods. How tightly do you cinch down the outer tie rod? Most suspension parts you want to be in there tight, but I'm pretty sure I over-did it. As the boot is 'crushed' should I back it out about 1/4 inch?

Service manual says 32 foot-pounds.

That's a tapered fit, you don't want it loose!

looks like the wrong boot for the tierod ends or wrong tierod ends for the vehicle.
