As a fabricator, I usually will use a "double slip" joint on boost applications, so if the joint can still be slipped apart, you could have a second overlapping sleeve welded on the outside (must be tight). An example of this is below (made by Burns). The other option would be to have the slip joint cut out and replaced with a stainless flex joint.

It may also be possible to disassemble the joint, and reassemble it with high temp silicone, it holds up better than you would believe, and will still allow some movement.
