Where is it leaking? At the clamp? or does it have a hole in it?

Not familiar with the Downey boots, although I looked it up quick and it looks like a one piece unit which is what you want. You don't want the two piece ones.

I can't imagine they'd be a bad product.... what does the downey boot price compare to toyota oem price?

Yeah, its leaking at the clamp. The Downey Boots are 14 bucks a piece, in there catalog. Not sure what the OEM ones cost.

Have you tried tightening up the clamp? Or buy another clamp?

I'm not sure what type of clamp it has - sometimes they can't be tightened but only 'bent' tighter. You could call and ask Toyota if they sell only the clamps, or try to find a larger clamp (large hose clamp) of some kind.
Search google for CV boot clamps....

Try that and see if that helps.
