leaking steering rack boot on 2005 Toyota Camry

Does the entire rack and pinion steering system need to be replaced because of a leaking rack boot? Car failed state inspection by dealer because of a leaking boot and wants $1000+ to replace the rack and pinion, states that boot cannot be replaced. I need to know within 15 days.

The boot can be replaced. Dealer is ripping you off.
