Upper Ball Joint dust boot cracked...

I couldnt tell if the the boot on the upper ball joint is cracked or ripped since it was dark out and didnt have a flashlight but there is grease everywhere around the boot and the boot feels empty( no grease). I just had both uppers replaced 2,300 miles ago. I just want to make sure it will be safe to drive tomorrow since they joints are new and there is still some grease in there. Im taking it in for the warranty work tomorrow.

I was going to say if you didnt have any warranty, buy a Moog upper control arm, its a complete replacement of the factory unit, with a greasable ball joint already installed

I used Moog for the lowers. Not sure what they used when i took it for the uppers. They replaced the upper control arm and upper ball joint. Im a little pissed it already had a crack/rip in it. Just had it done back in february.

You can get boots separately... I think Energy Suspension has them. Just take the pinch bolt out and pop a new one on!
