Just thought I'd pass along my experience with GSP cv axle's bought from Advanced auto parts. Replaced the passenger side 1 yr ago, and the inner cv went bad. Bought another GSP and it started clicking as soon as I started driving. Both of these are brand new, not re-manufactured axle assmbelys. I'm going to bring back the first one to see if they will honor the "limited lifetime replacement". So far I have bought 3 of these GSP units...1 went bad after 10,000 miles, 1 went bad right away, and 1(on the drivers side) seems ok but less than 500 miles on that one so far.

OEM or bust for axles. I know there are some that have had good luck with a couple brands, but I always just grab a junkyard axle and throw $20 worth of new boots at it, and had awesome luck.

Subaru or MWE (he's been rebuilding them for like 30 years) axles only. If you search here you'll find about 3,000 posts saying bad things about aftermarket axles. I've definitely posted hundreds of times alone.

Yup aftermarket sucks for axles unfortunately. You should try anderson auto in waterbury Pete. Ask for Jason. They rebuilt both of my axles on the subaru with EMPI parts and gave them a lifetime free rebuild guarantee. 2 years now and not one problem. The two problems with them are 1) you have to provide an axle 2) they are not cheap (as expensive as new pretty much). But the way i look at it..i dont have to spend money on an axle ever again so thats worth it to me.
