You will need a new boot, some grease, two new clamps, and a clamp tool. Don't get a split boot, they suck.
Since you have the time... Thouroughly clean the joint and inspect for damage, then regrease, and reassemble. Just hope you have the tools

You can get a complete axle with CVs for around $70 from RockAuto.com. It's easy, cheap, fast, and clean.

In terms of the installation, you'll need to pick up a 35mm socket to get the axle nut off, but other than that it's just basic tools.
