But the NAPA units come with a lifetime warranty.  So you could 'maintain'
your good shafts by cleaning and repacking (messy job) every what....couple
years...OR let em get a bit noisy and slap a new one in (not so messy job)
Don't get me wrong, nothing against the guys (and gals) who want to put top
quality in their Audi, but the rebuilts are a viable option for most people.
