If you are doing it yourself replace the whole axle many good quality new/re-manufactured axles available at a reasonable cost.
If the boot is split a long time examine the joint for wear and see what your mechanic says.

REPLACE THE WHOLE AXLE THEY ARE FAIRLY CHEAP AND THEN YOU GET 2 NEW BOOTS AND R/B JOINTS
