These axles are for a EA82? well if they are for the '88 GL. I don't beleive the boots are replaceable (Unless you use a big hose clamp) Lol. but that wouldn't be the best idea.

How big are the cracks? if they arn't to bad, I would start applying conditioners like (Mothers Back-to-black) this does soak into the rubber and makes it alot softer and restores the material. I use it on my wagon from time to time. Also good or rubber modlings, door seals, hoses, bumpers anything rubber/plastic.

Best'o luck
