    Anyone ever try the front 'OE' axles from Europa?

    Long story short, our Noggy Avant blew the front right axle. Come to find out, both axles are FEQ-like garbage. Color me shocked.

    Talked with Marty @ Raxles, who is super cool, but It's gonna cost a small fortune without valid cores. The ones at Europa look like OEM in the picture, but who really knows

    Thoughts?

    Gotta find cores second hand and send them in. I highly doubt the Europa ones are rebuilt cores.

    Yep. Price was just too low.

    Cores seem very hard to come by.

    Inner joint. Cheap whatevers that came with the car. Finding OEMs is like striking oil, apparently.

    I'm picking up another one at Autozone tomorrow only because I need to move the car for some excavating. Plus I need to use it for winter duty.
