The boot was  p/n 431 419 831 @$30 in stock at my favorite local parts guy:

J&R Foreign Autoparts
1817 Cottman Ave
Phila, PA

Keep in mind that he accepts only cash.
How far is Windsor NJ anyway?

I doubt that the rack is OK, tho, given it's vintage. The boot got torn coz it has 
lost its elasticity as a concequence of Pentosin leak.
Given the relative PITA to pull the rack out of the car, @ 50 bux per seal kit I'd 
rebuild it anyway.

Yep. That's why I always park it in the most lonesome fashion on those gigantic mall 
parking lots. On a remote *not-a-VIP* parking spot if you will. :)
