Just replaced both front axles, both clacking away. I used aftermarket ones from a1 auto. I read all the posts online about vibrations if you don't use oem $$$ axles. I don't notice anything other than its silent now when turning. Yay!
Same, I've replaced about a dozen CVs through different cars and always use Napa or get them aftermarket online and never had problems. Just don't forget to grease them. I've found aftermarket skimps on the grease.
