where should i buy a cv shaft

hello all,
ive had this cyclical rubbing coming from my front passenger wheel
thought it was brakes rubbing on my hoffibly warped rotors, so i machined the rotors and put new pads on
yes so it got worse...

i believe it to be the cv shaft because it makes the most noise when there's a load on the shaft, i.e. when i let off the gas in any gear, the noise dies down some, braking makes more noise than coasting, turning, and so on.

So to that extent, where should i buy my cv shaft assembly? i was quoted $120 for parts and $140 for labor at my mechanic, id love to do it myself with cheaper parts. Is that feasible?
links are welcomed!
