You can 'repair it'.
I've torn/melted a few boots in the run of my car career. If any amount of grease escaped, it wouldn't be a bad idea to squeeze some fresh stuff back in there, clean the boot exterior with brake cleaner (wipe, don't spray the torn boot) and you can use RTV silicone (or similar silicone product) to patch it up. It won't be pretty, but it will get you out of a bind and will likely last a very long time....these boots don't see a lot of movement.
A lot of cars have replacement balljoint boots you can buy (Hondas for example)...anyone know if the SC is one of em?
