One angle would be to replace the whole control arm. As far as I know, the
boots are not available seperately. When I replaced suspension pieces, I
damage the boot as well. As luck would have it, if you buy a bug
ball-joint, and unfortunately I don't remember if there's several diameters,
the ball joint boot diameters are compatable with our vehicles.
Believe me, I know. I've been using one for about 60k now.
