Napa rebuilt CVs - $45?

I know the consensus is OEM is much better, but I've heard really good things about Napa units. If you reserve your order online, it's 20% off from $57 this month. I just paid $45 each for fully rebuilt ones. They look good.

As for the strategy to keep the OEM as a spare, I dunno... at this price already rebuilt, may just get another and find something for core return.

FWIW, the nuts on them are 35mm, but the sticker said rebuilt from a regional company, so it might not be consistent. I've heard of a lot of remans having 36mm and even bigger, but OEM generally 35mm. Some OEMs reported to be 36mm.

I put Napa rebuilt on mine and I am pretty sure they were factory OEM remans. The ones I had on mine were factory OEM and the Napa ones were the exact same thing. I would take a head of an argument to convince me that the Napa one's aren't factory OEM pieces.

I swear by the Napa Axles - OEM rebuilds and still a 3 year warranty. I’d much rather be breaking those than dealership ones.

Thanks for the heads-up. Looks like a core price of $111.11.

Remanufactured axles are rebuilt OEM units. New ones are always Chinese. I like the Napa remans. No new or reman axle is going to have a boot that lasts as long as original though. Also beware that sometimes it is a new Chinese axle in a reman box, so check that before you walk out of the store with them. Some remans might be mostly new too, depends on what it took to rebuild it. New ones are usually new, shiney, bare metal and have different style CV joints than original. Remans are usually painted black or have a gray coating on them.

Lifetime warranty for NAPA new, but 3 year for their reman axles.

These are reman and the inner housings are the oem tri lobe.

Counter guy confirmed lifetime just keep receipt.

Edited: Bah - online, click on warranty it says 3 years. Counter guy prob wrong. Hopefully not an issue.

Aren't Napa axles (both new and reman) supplied by Cardone? Years ago when I had a torn boot I bought new axles from Napa and they had Cardone packaging to them. When I opened the box and saw how poor quality the axles were in terms of materials and machining, I returned them promptly and decided to just reboot my existing OEM axles.
