Torn CV boot, need help

Ok so heres the scenario. I have an 03 wrx, and i was putting coilovers on it. The stock strut hit the passengers front cv boot and theres like a 1/4" knick in it. I haven't driven it or since because i know how bad that can get. So, suggestions. Is there a way i can just like seal it up? or do i definitely have to replace the boot (or possibly the axle cause i've read its easier, though more expensive). Any other ideas up there and possible some good known write ups about doing an outer cv boot job? I seem to be only finding inner cv or axle jobs. Btw im planning on doing this in about 8 hrs so answer quick, lol.

I know a guy who had torn up boots he pumped a half tube of grease into each boot and wrapped them in duct tape.

I know you can get universal replacement boots, I thing they envelope the old boot as well and are put on w0out taking off the axle, but this is just hearsay. I wouldn't hesitate to put in some more grease and wrap the nicked area in electrical tape. It might last a lot longer, maybe just a little.
