Are you using cheap replacement parts? Seems unlikely that the gaiter would be split if it's fairly new unless it wasn't properly installed in the first place.

Is this front or rear? On mine at the rear, signs of cracking of the rubber bush were advised years ago, but I haven't changed it yet and it's not showed any symptoms of not working correctly. (If the business part of the bush failed you'd be in no doubt)

The Front offside is the culprit, the rubber splits along the bottom of both the upper and lower ball joints.
