Whatever you do, don't delay the repair. Looks like you found it early enough, probably no moisture or sand intrusion to the joint itself. A boot is a lot cheaper than the CV joint! You probably got lucky.

If your boot is good and the grease is just leaking past the clamp, I had great luck with this set:
and these Oetiker universal CV clamps
Just make sure you pull the boot back and clean out all of the old grease before repacking.

That’s what lotus said I cleaned it best I could and felt around I couldn’t feel any rips or tears in the boot the shaft assys are brand new he said to clean it and monitor it could have been overfilled and it was just leaking past the clamp
