Default I ruptured rubber boot while greasing

I have a 92' Ford Ranger Supercab with 2.9 V6. Recently, I lubricated this grease fitting that connects the drag link and the Pittman arm. The rubber boot ruptured as shown in the attached photo. I assume now that I have to replace it. I have a few questions.

Do I need special tools and impact wrench?

What points do I lift or jack up to take weight off suspension/steering area?

If I can't do it, am I looking at about 1 hour labor charge?

All you need are a torque wrench, normal wrench, various sockets to go with those wrenches, possibly a hammer, a pair of needle nose, and maybe a few more wrenches for shits and giggles..

I would say if you cant yourself, expect 2, that way if it is only 1, your prepared.
