I am about to replace both axle half shafts on my 2000 Bonneville. Does anyone have any experience and/or opinions on what is a better way to go. The pricing seems to be about the same. I have fears of cheap offshore new halfshafts quickly failing. Another thought is a cheaply done cosmetic rebuild job. I have been looking a Autozone Duralast shafts.
There seems to be 2 different shafts depending on the axle ratio FQ3 or F83. I assume there is a chart on the car somewhere that will tell me the details.
I used a new but non-GM part. It works fine and saved me over a $ 100. Since I had it done at a dealer, I can't remember what it was, but it solved my problem. I would say go new, no matter what the brand.
