Where did you get the replacement grease boots, they look good

All new tie rod ends and idler arm from rock auto. there were a few different brands, some boots were better than others. I also over greased one and it popped so I shoved a boot from a different set on.

Am I correct to say that I get a 11/16 bit, drill through the arm holes completely, gap the inserts with a dremel cut off wheel so that they squeeze closed enough to get into the new holes and bolt it back up now flipped?

 

Thanks
