Yea that was my experience also, What I may do is buy a new one and redo the other one so in the future if it rips I can just cycle them out. Annoying dinking around for 30-45 minutes cleaning and repacking the thing with a wife tapping her foot LOL. I understand that that CV boot will tear on cars but the XI's it seems a bit higher than normal. It also looks like the outer takes the most punishment because of the exposure.
