torn caliper piston boot

Autozone doesn't offer caliper overhaul kits, so my only option would be to but a reman caliper for $70.
Just how much of a problem is this torn boot?

I went to change the piston seals when I first noticed the fluid, but then realized that wasn't the problem. It was a pin hole in the caliper boot. I changed my pads while I was at it because the outer pad was worn down and really uneven, inner pad was good though. After I changed the pads, all the pressure blew a big chunk of the caliper boot off. The car still stops just as poorly as it did before the new pads!
