New 1LE axle spewing grease

Anyone with a 1LE or using 1LE axles have any problems with the CV boot leaking grease? Just found out today after 50 miles my new axles on the driver's side outer boot is spewing grease everywhere. We can't find any cuts in the boot. It looks like the welded band just isn't tight enough to hold the boot snug on the CV. After looking at this closer, this is a pretty crappy way to do this. They basically overlapped the ends of the band and spot welded the it closed around the rubber boot.
