Best CV Axles?

Been researching replacement aftermarket CV Axles and can't seem to find one brand that's reliable.
OEM Nissan costs $600 while ValueAdvantage is $180.
Rockauto lists new A1 Cardone's and a company called AWPI. Has anyone had good luck with these?

Wrecker OEM 6th gen axles (if you have 2002-2003)
Wrecker OEM 5th gen axles
Maybe Diversified https://www.ebay.ca/itm/CV-Axle-Shaf...4:pf:0&vxp=mtr
General consensus is everything else sucks.

It's crazy that so many axles are no good. I bought a New set of A1 Cardone CV Axles for my 4th Gen Maxima, and they've held up for 10k so far

Try import direct from O'Reilly's. Great quality don't have to worry about shorter/thinner than oem boots and even comes with a new dust shield (at least for the 4th gen), after reviews on just about every brand I'm sticking with the import direct

Get OEM if you can - look on car part.

I have diversified shaft solutions on my '03; bought 'em because they have the dampener when a lot of other aftermarket brands don't.......but I can't tell you how they are yet because the cars been up on jack stands since I put 'em on last October.
