If you buy rebuilt, do NOT buy ARI rebuilt shafts. I had never heard of the company before, but I picked up a set rather cheap. The axles were the wrong length, so I dug in and pulled the joints off, and installed them on my axles. Once I got them apart, I found that ALL of the races were already scored, and some of them were pitted BADLY. Next, I couldn't get the joints apart. The ball bearings that were installed were too large, and the inner/outer races were not matched sets, the angles on the grooves were different. Took me the better part of a day to re-match some new ball bearings, and match up some of my old races with some of the new ones.
I'm going to give the shop royal s*** when I return half of their new axles as cores.
