We feel that refurbishing your original axle shaft with OE quality joint kits is a higher quality alternative to aftermarket axle assemblies, yet is still cost effective. Our refurbish kits include new inner and outer OE quality Metelli brand CV joints, boots, grease and hardware required for installation.

Why spend the additional time and money to refurbish your original axles with OE quality joints? Two reasons: First, the Metelli CV joints are higher quality than those supplied on aftermarket axle assemblies. Second, you will retain your original vehicle-specific axle shaft. Aftermarket axle assemblies use a generic solid axle shaft, while many OE axles use a large diameter tubular or solid/tubular design. You will be better off with your original axle shafts.

Whether you decide to refurbish your original axle with our joints kits or install an aftermarket axle assembly, you’re going to have the old axle out of the car either way. We highly recommend the refurbishing kit. Yes, you will spend a little extra time and get a little greasier (hint: we sell rubber gloves), but the end result will run smoother and last longer than an aftermarket axle assembly.

True this! German engineering was originally known for overbuilt, precise quality. Obviously it's not the axle itself that goes bad it's the components attached to it. Thanks for this common sense cure to the POS stuff that's out there right now.
