Removing the axle from the hub or the entire half shaft is really quite easy on
the T44s and replacing the whole axle will cost only about $80.
That would be my choice because the split boots are dificult to fit well and
even then are a questionable fix.

this place sell them mail order, I guess the quality may vary from sdiffrent
brands, these are the ones I used:

The same people sell very good stretchy boots, which are not much harder
to fit and way more reliable. Well done for having got sticky boots to
work, but you're in a minority, or so experience in
I have watched people struggle with them, thing is if you are going to
remove one end of the shaft to get a stretch one on you may as well just put
a OEM one on, I only use them for speed, I keep spares in the shed just
encase, the big secret is to clean the mating surfaces your going to put the
glue on first, with something like alcohol or cassette head cleaner,
Use stretchy boots instead. Split boots return to their native state,
i.e. split, very soon after you put 'em on.
We did once have someone here who claimed to have managed to get 'em to
work, but he was the only one out of dozens of people who vaguely know
what they're doing who've failed.
