Indeed it does look familier. Reminds me of my driver's side one. I really do need to get those changed.

I accidentally ripped the boot on mine when I was installing my lowering springs, so it's only a matter of time before my passenger side looks like that too.

So what happens when it gets that bad...does it start clunking, making noise, etc?

Most of the time, they will start popping when turning into an inclined driveway first, then just pop randomly. They are easy to change, I'd do them before they show signs of breaking, you don't want one to break.

Easy to change? Those nuts are a PITA to get to. I am sure on someone else car the wiring wouldn't be so in the way on the back sid of the passenger side, but I bet it still isn't fun to get to. Then you have that pesky master cylinder in the way on the back of the driver's side.

Too easy. Unplug the weather pack connector on the passenger's side, and unbolt it from the fender, and you have plenty of room. On the driver's side, just wrench between the booster and inner fender, no problem. The trick is to use a ratcheting wrench, and you can do each side in 15-20 minutes.

I did undo the connector. I have a bundle of extra wires routed over there that made it real hard to go to. Nice to know that the way the car designed it really was easier, because, man, that really sucked.
