Axle / Half Shaft Replacement 97 Legacy L AT AWD
My legacy has a cracked front inner cv boot and a cracked front outer boot on the other axle. Since it has 125k I don't really want to spend 400 on OEM axles.
I've read here that I should get MWE, Cardone, or GCE axles because other aftermarket ones have vibration issues. I've found cardone axles re-manufactored and new for about $45 - are the reman'd ones better or the new ones better? Are there any other aftermarket axles I could use?
Perhaps something from a shop in my area? (I can get Master Pro half shafts from kragen and Duralast from autozone)
Also, a lot of axles I see say "Transfer Inner Stub Shaft From OE Axle" - how hard is that to do, and is there a chance my original inner stub shaft is damaged or worn excessively?
Also, are the axles in the front the same as the back?
