Power steering question

I'm coverting my CJ from manual to power steering. Everything has gone smooth until now. I bought a steering coupler kit to fit the power steering box instead of replacing the entire shaft. My question is, how in the world do you install the new coupler boot onto the shaft without ripping it? I am pretty frustrated over this should be simple task. Thanks in advance.

Very carefully. It will stretch enough to go over the pins. Make sure that it's warm and that will help prevent tearing it.

A little liquid on the inside or the boot ends will help.

Thanks! I figured it was a one shot deal and I didn't want to mess it up.
