    Mine have been torn off and gone for 8yrs/2000hrs. Idly worrying about it has been effective so far.

    I noticed my boots were cracked a bit but I'm probably going to go this route. If I have to replace the whole thing, then I'll wait until one breaks or stops moving. Until then, if it works it works and there's no real need for me to mess with it.

    It may be worse to leave the boot on after it is breached. It might hold water and keep it wet. Im rather surprised that mine show absolutely no ill effect from running open. If I were to guess Id predict 10,000 hrs to wear out/fail.

    When mine split, I cleaned it up good with brake cleaner an applied some "Goop" repair in a tube. Let it set up for 24 hours and it's been fine for nearly a year now.

    I have not given it a good look and it is currently over on my property, but curious if those of you that have been up close and personal if you believe I could tap a Zerk fitting in somewhere and forget replacing the boot?

    I did the same on my truck. They were split on the ball joints when I got it. I cleaned with brake kleen and put black rtv on cracks

    No way. Its an axial ball joint, there is no mild steel 'cap' its all forged steel. Look at the pic at top of the thread. Agreed removing a torn boot altogether is better than one with a rip. It looks crappy and unmaintained but if the boot is gone it looks fine.
    Be careful what you wish for, you might get it.
