About 2 1/2-3 years ago I bought both.  FTE/FAG/Dana
brand.  Made in Germany.  Cast iron bodies rather than
alloy.  Less than $80. for both.  Like mid 30's and
high 30's ea. I think.  Anyway, they have held up very
well.  Maybe 60k miles or more.  I bought mine from
Import Parts Specialists in Boise, Idaho., I
think.  These were for an 89 200q.
