Default Which Manf., has the best CV Boot Kit?

I'm over at the Parts Geek site, trying to determine who's producing the better CV BOOT REPAIR KIT.
Any suggestions?? pc

For the front outers I have used the Audi kits which are pretty cheap and seem great!

I think I have gotten them from Amazon as well. Avoid Smartpost if you buy from Europa unless you are going on vacation for a couple weeks and the parts can wander around aimlessly in your absence.

My tricks are to use the axle bolt and a spacer to press the joint apart and to make the D ring smaller and more round for reassembly so it fits into the counterbore and does not get mashed and cut.
