Honestly, i just got done parting out another car, i used the whole half axle off the other car but disassembled, cleaned, re greased and put new boots on it befor installing it on my car. Personally if the boot were just torn recently and not clicking at all, it would be cheaper to just get boots given that you do it yourself. Shopwise, forget about it, most all shops will say replace the half axle(s) because to get new boots the axle has to be disassembled, preped and put together. I did the job on mine in one day, it was fun, not complicated as everyone thinks. Saved myself hundreds of dollars and learned something in the process. Buy a manual for the vehicle and if your hands on like myself, follow the directions and understand the basics of cars than go for it, but i will warn you if you really want to tackle the job make sure understand that it requires tools/grease (and trans fluid since you are pulling the driveaxle out of the transmission, be ready with a oil pan)/time and extensive labor, the manuels explain it all clear enough. At $15 a boot, given that the tear is very recent and no clicking, its a job based on labor. I had fun doing mine, hope this helped. fyi: i am not a mechanic, just 20yr old collage student and not going to school for automotive, if i can do it im sure alot of people can do it to.
