UCA grease boots are leaking. How do I fix?

Hey everyone,
I was checking out the front suspension today and noticed that the rubber grease boots on the stock UCA uniball are leaking grease. The truck has a 2.5 lift with billy 5100's. Do I have to get new boots entirely or is there a way to refill the grease in there?

Thanks

I'd just wait until they develop play and then replace the whole thing, not really a way to replace only the boots.

You can use a needle adapter to pump in fresh grease though, if you do that just wait until you lose a bunch.

I should say if you can see just a tiny hole you could clean the outside with some brake cleen and then hit the hole with some RTV.

If you elect to use a needle adapter I'd use any grease you'd use in your u-joints. It's not so much as what you use but that they stay cleanly lubed. Any contamination will quickly create wear and thusly slop as would running them dry.
