Whilst I don't live in QLD, I can't see it being an issue....It's not a critical safety issue....It will only cause ball section to fail prematurely and cause an annoying rattle

Perhaps have a chat to your roadworthy fella, prior to taking it for the roadworthy and get his opinion over it

rubber boots of all kinds are normally a fail, cheap to replace so why wouldn't you?

Buy and replace the boot is all too easy peasy.

Simple answer is "Yes" it will,

However, they are cheap on ebay, just buy new ones and be done with it.
