    they're remanufactured....they take the factory cores, clean up the splines, regrease and boot them with their boots...so the steel and main structure is factory strength, only loss is with the boots...

    i got 97000 on my axles before i had my passenger side boots start to leak, haven't busted open, but are definitely leaking..CVJ states their boots are better than other aftermarket boots out there but all aftermarket boots are not as durable as the factory, but they are more flexible (factory uses a harder compound than aftermarket boots)..

    the average life on these aftermarket boots run around 50k...these guys also warranty their axles, so if i bust one up somehow, i can bring it back to them for a new axle under warranty..

    I was surprised that a toyota dealership recommended CVJ axles over a stock replacement. They must be good quality even with the reused parts. Definitely going to pick up 1 or 2 before moab.

    Do remember the price per cv? I forgot :p

    Only thing id say to add with what BOB said would be their boots have less fins, which makes it less likely the fins touch. the less the fins touch the less chances u have that the fins wear and break open. I love mine.

    And absolutely we recommend them. WE see them almsot everyday and they take great care of our customers. I as a tech always give the customer the option of reboot with oem parts or replace completely with CVJ. 98% of the time CVJ is chosen and never had a problem. LIke i said i love mine. I believe they are around 75 a piece...

    no problem...talk with steve over there if you can..he's been very helpful with the process

    they also offer an off-road silicone based boot for the inner boot, but with our lifts the application was not beneficial/necessary...

    great suggestion for an alternative way into moab from grand junction area...

    adds 1.5hr to the drive, but is slightly less in mileage (8m)...

    through gateway

    Seems like it he did a good job with the Trasharoo GB and I could use more CV's even though I have 2 spare OEM's currently not on the truck and am running the Cardone CV's which are holding up really well.

    got the new axles in today. while it was up on the lift we also put in new coolant, tranny fluid and greased up the drive shafts...

    unfortunately noticed that my lower ball joint is showing signs of old age and are now on the summer to-do list...

    but the truck is approaching 99k on the odometer (really closer to 110k due to the larger diameter tires that have been on since 25k and no speedo recal), and the parts have been holding up very nicely i must say...

    new cvjs waiting to go in..

    [​IMG]

    reason why the new cvs got put in...passenger side inner boot throwing out some guts

    CVJ.... http://www.cvjreman.com/

    company out of denver who remans factory cvs..
    "To ensure you a Quality axle CVJ:
    -Uses high quality grease and balls
    -Only reuses components with insignificant wear
    -Inspects splines and threads on all axles
    -Straighten bars to a standard twice as accurate as the industry
    To prevent leakage and dripping CVJ:
    -Uses top quality Neoprene boots
    -Polishs all seal surfaces"


    so they have factory meat with neoprene boots, new grease and balls...stronger than the other aftermarket cvs seems how they use factory steel which is better than the chinese made crap

    PSU is trying to get a group buy going with them now..

    yeah they look good. Is it an upgrade to get the boots you got? They look like they are for high angle?

    they are comparable to stock...same # of fins and similar spacing..

    the factory boots are a harder compound which leads to high average mileage life than these...but these still have an average life of 50k+ which is not bad...i got 100k+ actual miles out of these...
