New axle or cv boot?

Hello all! So the the other day I replaced all four shocks on the ol' focus SVT as she has hit 90k. I didn't realize it until a day later that somehow the inner CV joint axle boot has ripped and has sprayed grease all over. Oreilly auto sells new remanufactured half shafts for 70 dollars or a new boot kit for 20. Is it worth replacing the entire axle while I have it all apart? Or should I just take the shaft out and install a new boot?

Thanks!
