ruptured drag link bushing?

So went out to work on a few things and found grease all over the joint and sway bar disco clip. After cleaning it up, looks like the way the clip was hanging it had sliced through the drag link bushing located as pictured below. What do I do?? What do I buy?? Help is much appreciated.

Buy a tie rod end boot set for $5 at a local parts store and replace the damaged boot...

I know this is an old thread, but does anyone know what size boot is needed for a 2013 Wrangler? Energy Suspension has lots of different size boots.
