Refurbished axles

Would you consider buying refurbished axles?

new 91, used 54, and with the canadian dollar being at pesos level, 91 dollars is like 1 million canadian.
Seriously, it will be 140 or something like that, plus shipping, handling, duty taxes, tons.

Here is the link:
71 1971 Mercedes 250C CV Axle Assembly - Driveshaft & Axle - EMPI, USA Industries, Rear Left, Rear Right - PartsGeek

thank you.

actually another link shows many more variations and even cheaper but new axles:

So confusing what to choose.

I wouldn't place a high level of faith in the remanufactured axles from China. The labor to replace these is high, this qualifies as a "do it once, do it right" job and the axles will last another 4 decades, plus or minus.

Exchange your old axles for new ones from these guys, or place a slight premium to have your original parts rebuilt.

CVJ Axles - CV Axles & Steering Racks for all your needs

I paid around $300 for this service on both axles for my 450 SLC 5.0, well worth it, they were done right
