What kind of truck/car do you have. I'm assuming you have a lifted truck if you are having as much trouble as you say. When you lift a independant front suspension truck by adjusting the torsion bars you make the cv boot angle steep. This isn't the route to go on lifting a truck.

That said there are some trucks there is no lift kit available. So the torsions are the only option, ie Isuzu Rodeos, Troopers, Amigos, Passport (Honda).

Anyway let us know what you drive and if it's lifted or not.

Maybe we can help you out.

Replace the broken boot with the proper boot and be done with it.

Barring that, it may have ruined the entire axle due to dirt entering the joint. Replace the whole axle with a rebuilt for safety.

replace as assy

Like Joe said replace the whole drive axle that is the only way and the best way.I have never seen any of the bandaid fixes work.Also watch your drive angles they can tear up boots as well as cv joints pronto.
