Frount Axle Boots

While checking out my check engine light today I noticed that the inner CV boot is tore in half on one frount axle. I checked a couple of other threads on this and was wondering if new axles and boots are the way to go? My Outback has 150,000 miles on it and I am pretty sure that they have never been replaced and I hate doing anything twice when you can do it once and be done with it, and since CCR is just over the hill from me I think that I would go with their axles. Any suggestions.
I just had the same problem. I ordered boot kit and a GCK axle on amazon (no core cost). I installed the new axle (quality seems good) and I will eventually rebuild the original axle.
rebooting while still attached to the hub just seemed a pain since I don't have a lift or garage and would rather clean everything up right inside.

If you discovered the split before any serious contamination, I would replace the boots on both alxles and rotate them. These OEM NTN half shafts hold up pretty well.
