You might try the zip up type boots that can be fitted from the outside
without any disassembly. I think they are about $20 each (or used to be)

My daughter needs to eek one more year out of her school car, a '92 Honda
Accord that can't pass emissions requirements in many states.  Her mechanic
recommends replacing torn CV boots for $180, which seems reasonable to me.
She is reluctant to spend the money for one year of use.  Any thoughts on
the likelihood that the joints will survive a year of casual driving with
leaky boots?  Would duck tape help?  Would periodic squirts of grease
through the holes help?
