options for upgraded cv axles?
changed my oil yesterday and realized a couple cv boots where leaking. before i repair the boots and possibly the cv joints/or just replace the axles i was curious if there are any options for upgraded lsd axles? i don't have abs so no worry there, and i only have a ve with about 215-220hp from the crank(a guess) so its not like I'm running huge power but upgrades for possible future hp is always nice i guess driveshaft shop used to have axles but i couldn't find them

So far in my opinion out in the market there aren't to much to choose from either OEM or good remans. This is how I look at it in my personal view:
Better than broken ones
*Anybrand from any local Auto Parts (Remans or New)
*New(Cardone or EMPI) Find them cheap here and also hopefully its the right axles tendency of sending wrong axles(www.rockauto.com)
*OEM ones (Green Ones=Better Material)(parts.nissanusa.com) or Try finding some for sale (New/Used) on the classified.
*Custom Axles; www.driveshaftshop.com
Other option if is leaking
*Re-Build your own;
Find cheap herewww.rockauto.com Look under CV Joint Boot->(RAYBESTOS or DORMAN)

awesome info, thanks. which year/model had the green axles? whats the difference?

holy sh*#, didn't realize oem part sites wanted $400+ per axle

so, the question now is, which company have people had better luck with... EMPI or Cardone? cardone is a bit cheaper but their product info is very close to empi's and more detailed

Green ones are usually OEMs. They are just made of better quality internal & external parts. Rather than cheap material like some reman factory companies. That's probably why they're so expensive.

I have herd goods and bads with EMPI there is a thread if you search about them I can't look it up right now since I'm off a cell phone. I have never try them I have used Cardone and Advance Auto very good reman quality. You also got put into consideration the part the is used to reman.

Raxles but you have to send him real OEM axles first

Contact GregV at Gspec. Ask for the ISO certified Chinese axles. Best bang for the buck. I think they're priced about half of what OEM costs.
