issues and headaches with toughone brand from advance auto

I needed a new cv axel for my car, bought a toughone brand from advance auto. They are supposed to be brand new. It fit fine and installed with no problems. I drove on it for 2 days and then it started vibrating bad. Took out the first one and installed another. Drove it for a few days and it started vibrating again. Just to make sure it was the axel i put the original back in (has a torn cv boot) and it drives fine with no vibrating.
The employees at advance auto have been cool, they give the refunds with no problems. Just a pain in the ass that i have now done the same job 3 times and still need to put a new one in from napa.

That's a common issue with bottom-rung offshore parts. OEM may be expensive, but you get what you pay for in most cases. In China or Taiwan or wherever they're sourcing that stuff, all those manufacturers care about is if the part looks correct, they don't give a hoot if it will perform properly

Yea i only got it because it was faster and easier to swap the whole thing rather then use one of the glue on "qwik boot" for the torn cv boot.
