Need help with part numbers - CV boots for right front axle MCS

Have to re-boot a CV axle. I've done this on a BMW, and it seems real similar, so I am hoping it will go easily. I have a 2003 MC-S M/T build date 03/03.

I searched on realoem, but the parts shown were sort of confusing - I understand the M/T and A/T axles are different, but it seems the boots are different too.

Are these the correct part numbers for the inner and outer right side CV boots for my car?
31607518258
31607518259

If there is interest, I can try to make my re-boot into a DIY, since I didn't see one up there.

Thanks,

David

Just posting a follow up. I ended up ordering aftermarket boots using the part numbers above and they fit fine. 31607518258 is available from Empi. 31607518259 is available from GKN LOEBRO (supposedly OEM supplier). Found each for $14-$15 range after shopping around a little bit. Once the axle was out, it was an easy job. rusted-in-place ball joints were the only hassle - quite hard to get the knuckle free to provide clearance to get the axle out.
