I have been putting boots on MB axles for years (about 20). All in takes is the proper tools (I think they were about $1500 when I bought them 20 years ago). The most important piece nas gotten cheaper through the years.

The problem is that I charge $102 labor for cutting one can disassembling the C/V joint, replacing two boots and recrimpimg the one can. It will require opening at least one can to get to the C/V for removal. (the V8 inner can can not be recrimped so the boots are done through the outer C/V; which is the same) This amount is almost more than the cheap axle places just for the labor so we don't do them much anymore.
