Good writeup, Bernie.  Did you consider patching the boot with liquid electrical tape or similar?

Most of the time the ball joint boot is destroyed by letting the control arm spring back up and hit the strut housing, or by not watching where you are prying.  Careful!  It might also be easy to release the inner control arm mount to relieve it and allow it to sag; just tighten again once the car is on it's wheels.
