CV axle to be avoided

I recently needed a new driver side CV axle - my boot had torn, oil was everywhere, dirt got in and the axle died.

I went to autozone and got a new duralast CV axle - part number 9369N.

I do not know about the passenger side - may be the same story and it may not.

This axle is to be avoided at all costs. Mine was about 2-3 inches too short. Although it worked, the inner boot was stretched to all getout. I was worried about boot failure down the road. Appearantly this is not an unherdof occurance at autozone.

I would avoid duralast branded CV axles, CV joints.

Also avoid their ratchets. Had a 3/8 ratchet last less than a months - used all of 4 times and not that hard.

Ther batteries do hold up decently - but I have a new policy of avoiding their parts.
