    goop

    Try cleaning it well with carb or brake cleen,then apply some "Goop" stuff you can buy at parts stores,Wal-Mart,Lowes,etc..or Black RTV silicone..I've used "Goop" with good results on torn tie rod boots--"HELP" brand sell new boots for tie rod ends,but I don't think they sell ball joint ones--too many different ones..:crazy:
