Try Tousley Ford 800-328-9552.
If you want the best boots, go to dieselsite, but they are more than 90.00 (EDIT: damn, they are out of stock for 8-10 WEEKS)...

After having blown up two clamps while towing with the stock setup, I decided to upgrade to the Dieselsite boots and clamps. Both are considerably better in terms of quality and performance. I gained about 2psi of boost pressure by switching, which means that my 100k mile stockers were leaking just a bit under full load, despite no tears or holes and my CCV had been rerouted for a few years, so it wasn't likely due to oil saturation.

PS. You can also try siliconintakes.com. They are cheap although I haven't run them.

RIFF RAFF Diesel makes a nice set, very reasonable. I have the "bent outlet coupler on my truck, works great, no "OIL SWEAT"

I recommend the Dieselsite Boots. I replaced all of mine when I did my EGR delete 2 years ago and have never regretted it. They are a little pricy compared to stock, but worth the peace of mind.

The crankcase vents into the intake tube and you get an oily mist from the crankcase inside the CAC boots, tubes and intercooler. Reroute the CCV and you might be ok.
