    Biting the bullet and having my stealership replace the needle bearing in my front differential due to the famous 2wd vibration after 2.5 inch lift via 5100's. My question is: Do I go with the Toyota factory CV axle @ $447 or the autoparts store CV. Napa is $110 and O'reilly is $70, both having lifetime warranties. Toyota part has a one year warranty vs the lifetime on aftermarket parts.... Stealership doesn't care if I bring in the aftermarket part so I think I'm going that route but wanted to get some opinions from the collective.
