I like A1 Cardone, shown in the link above.

Other than that, Ford are probably the highest quality. But they all still break. So I've been just swapping out lifetime warrantied GS-P brand axles on all of mine. $59 retail, no questions warranty coverage. i dont think I purchased a Focus axle years, but boy I've sure removed lots busted ones!!!

My latest victim:

Even Massive NA Zetecs rip prothane bushings, stock housings and axles to pieces! ;)

my car broke down out of town last week and i had to use a duralast cv axle driver side. inner boot appears to be stretched as you mentioned. it works, yet now i don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but upon braking the car shakes as if a wheel bearing is bad, and a suspension knocking has occurred which appears to be a bad strut. do you think the axle is the causing this?
