Dieselsite has a good set that a lot get. Lots of other places online do too. RiffRaff I think?

I will second the Dieselsite Boots. They are a little bit pricey, but I will never worry about blowing a boot off. With a CCV mod done, some might say you can replace with OEM, but I went with the Dieselsite for piece of mind. I did not have a problem prior, just the boots seeping oil. Many have had good results with Riff Raff and other vendors also. If you don't get any other response, do a google search.

I recently changed my boots and went with Riff Raff only because diesel sites were on back order. I would recommend getting diesel sites retaining rings. The aftermarket boots don't have the lip inside that sits in the groove in the steel pipe. The retaining rings sit in that groove and stick up a little bit higher, really locking the boot on.

I've heard good things about the RiffRaff boots. I personally went with new stock boots after I did the CCV mod, and 6 months pushing 35psi hasn't blown one off yet.
