Is this a big concern. I am sure water has already seeped in the shock but after replacing my final drive unit the rubber boot on one of the rear shocks is torn.

Any suggestions?

The boot is more of a dust shield between the shock piston shaft and cylinder housing. There are seals between the shaft & cylinder that will prevent water damage to the working parts. If the boot is available separately, replace it as soon as possible to keep dirt & dust from chafing the seals, which would eventually cause a leak. Before ordereing the boot, visually inspect the shaft for signs of scraping, surface contamination or damage. It should be smooth and shinny. If the shaft is damaged, replace the shock as an assembly.

Renegade is right, the boot is just a dust cover but it is important to have it. The part number of the boot is 52611-463-013, hope this helps.
