Which axle brand. Rockauto.

So I need new axles for my 04, went on rockauto and there's a few brands, empi, cardone select, and a-1 cardone (remans)

I'm thinking of going with the cardone select.

Just wanted opinions from you folks.

Is price of any concern? If so, what's the difference between the different options?

Price difference between em isn't enough to sway me one way or the other. Like $15-$20 difference.

I am on a budget though. OEM isn't an option.

I'd say Cardone Select then. Brand new parts have warranties which is always a nice thing to have.

A-1 Cardone is OE remanufactured parts. They actually might only offer core refunds when you buy remanufactured parts too so that's something to keep in mind.
