For the CARDONE CV Axles, they are the same company. The new and remanufactured are actually they same price, but there is a core deposit on the remanufactured of $100 per axle, no core charge and nothing to return if buying new.
Outlay for new CARDONE axles (left and right) $45 X2 + $20 shipping= $110
Outlay for remanufactured axles (left and right) $45 X2, +40 shipping (have to send back old), plus core $100 x2= $330... (200 will get returned when cores are received).
Why would someone lay out $330 for remanufactured (really $130 when extra actions are completed) when you can get hassle free for $110? There must be a reason......
