The Axles are cheap enough that usually you just buy a new axle. Don't get re-manufactured. Rock Auto has them for good prices. I don't think any one really makes "performance" or heavy duty CV joints for our cars.

I believe the stage 1's from A1CVTECH are $500 and their policy is it you break their axles they will upgrade you to the next level at your expense but give you the new price of the ones you were running as a discount towards the next stage. This is what they call a lifetime warranty.

The usual stuff like hardened chromoly cups and bearing cages etc.

Yes they are. But if you're running 500whp plus that's a drop in the bucket. If you aren't then something from A1CVTECH is a better option imho.

What is your application and power level?
