Drag Link Grease Fitting

Hey everybody,
I've got a question about a piece I need to replace. A month or two ago I snapped my drag link off road so I had it welded up to get me home. A few days later I stop by the local U Pull N Pay and picked one up and replaced my broken one. In the process of switching them out, however, I busted open the grease boot around the stud connecting to the pitman arm which eventually leaked all the grease. My question is, can I just replace the rubber fitting or do I have to replace the whole end on the drag link?
Thanks a lot and sorry for rambling
Zac

Just buy a new rubber or poly tie rod boot. A used one will work also.
