getting tired of having to get my lazy arse out of my car, rotate the CV, pop the spring clip out and throw it in 4wd to get home. (not to mention, replacing the dang thing later!)
Also, dont buy JY CV's... possibility of rolling a 1 outta 6 on a die is very possible...

How are your tranny mounts? radius rod and other bushings? Have you double checked all your bolts after lift kit instal? Something might be loose or wornout cuasing too much slop in your drivetrain.

I've never had one go bad yet. One car (the RustBucket) has 40,000km on a 2-year old pair of them, and the New Car has about 20k on its set.
Normal axles from them have a 'CVS' prefix, but these ones start with 'CVX'. For my cars, I use a 'CVX 8001' axle.
I'd definitely check out all of the suspension components and bushings though. It could be a faulty $5 part that's breaking all of your axles.

btw, napa's reman'd axles have a barcode sticker on 'em.

Has anyone looked into welding the weak areas to reinforce them before installation?
Of all the broke axle's I've seen it was internal failure inside the 'cups'. Either the C/V 'cage' giving way or the DOJ giving way inside the 'cup'. Don't see where you could weld in there to reinforce them.
