Hi Calvyn

Sounds like you got the whole job done, good for you. I did my CV joints 
when I was turning the wheel lock to lock , adjusting a tie rod end and tore 
the boot open, so I am glad you did it before then, you are right pretty 
messy, in fact i threw away a whole bunch of clothes, but what a great 
feeling when you are done. I sa your torn rubber boot and you MAY have 
another option. PS don't cram too much grease in in future... the boots are 
usualy just held in place with two springs. It is not meant to be removed 
but I an sur they could be, try googleing the part number on te rubber boot. 
Too bad really , I just replaced my two front tie rod ends and I would bet 
you anything those rubber boots would have fit, and yes of course I threw 
them out.

Good luck.
