I've used em and never had a problem. It its not OE, its Chinese. And they are all about the same. But check out autozone too. They were pretty cheap there.

FYI, I contacted EMPI directly and the as far as the front passenger side half shaft...(one that I needed) it's no longer made or distributed by EMPI. So if you find one somewhere kudos to you!

Stock work well enough, or remans which are most times reman'd stocks.

I don't know of anyone who's actually broken one.
