I think I still have one good one, if I can find it.

You can order them (yes, just the boots) from Nisstec for pretty cheap. They have the smaller boots that are less likely to catch on your coil bucket- if that's what caused your tears.

Serious ? I dont see them on their web site . But if they do have them i will have to call em up. Mine have cracks/tears in the boots from flexing not from contact .

Yeah... Nisstec will definitely sell the boots alone but you need to call. I just replaced mine this past weekend and also did the bucket grinding that I never did before because I didn't think I had to. Two torn boots later bucket grinding was clearly needed.

There definitely was contact for me. I had to remove about 1/4" to 3/8" on each side to clear the bucket. What I had to grind away was so the boot wouldn't make contact with the bucket. If the ball joint was out in a different position it wouldn't have been a problem but it's set all the way inside to get a proper alignment.
