So for the past year I have been driving on a bad outer cv joint, which I could tell by the clicking coming from the passenger side whenever I make right turns. Now the inner CV joint is messed up because I hit something in the road and now randomly, when driving straight I hear a loud popping sound coming from the passenger side and the steering wheel will jerk to the left a little bit, which gives me the idea that the bearings in the joint are binding.

I guess what I'm getting at is, I found a half axle for around 80 bucks and I was wondering if anyone has had experience with the brand and if it works alright.

Part #: W0133-1613224

I've heard horror stories about EMPI, so I am trying to stay away from them.

I don't really have a lot of money to spend, so the less I spend, the better off I'll be. If anyone has any suggestions or advice, please let me know. Thanks.
