Question 2007 Murano CV Axle Shaft: Aftermarket Brand ??

My son and I will be replacing the passenger side front CV axle shaft on my wife's 2007 Murano SL AWD. I've been shopping online (RockAuto, CARiD, PartsGeek, CarPartsDirect, etc.) and need advice/opinions on which brand to purchase or avoid. In other words, which would you install on your Murano? I think I'm leaning toward Cardone or maybe FEQ. Another question: Are remanufactured CV shafts "better"?

Cardone (new or remanufactured)
First Equipment Quality (FEQ)
GSP North America
SurTrack/TrakMotive
USA Industries (remanufactured)
OPparts
APWI
Other?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

I've had the driver's side FEQ (from partsgeek.com) and was completely satisfied with it for many many miles. I now replaced both the front cv axles with Autozone's Duralast brand and I am also happy with them. For a 10th of the price of the original part from the dealer, I wouldn't do any different...even if I had to replace them a few times. Keep in mind that I do have 236k miles on my car, so the cv axles did need replacing on both ends. Either for torn boots and/or slight clicking during takeoff.

No matter what the brand or supplier, all of these "aftermarket" (as well as OEM) parts are made in the same Chinese factories. So buy from someone yu know, if the price is right.

You may also be able to find a local rebuilder if you're in a metro area. I live 60 miles north of Denver and there are one or two businesses that rebuild racks and CV axles locally. Google may help.

Have to look but I think we used the Cardone CV joint from Rock Auto. Also used the Moog LCA's from Rock Auto. No issues.
