They protect that joint from dirt, grime, and other elements that could get in there and ruin the ball bearing. Get them replaced ASAP or the repair will only get more expensive.

Since it's a Civic it might just be cheaper to replace the whole axle (remanufactured/refurbished ones are readily available), especially if you can DIY.

You also got the name right.
