Default CV Shafts

Anybody know of some heavier duty CV Shafts for my Bonneville SSEi? I've got semi-light mods right now and still manage to go through a CV Shaft a year at least.

I don't remember what brand the last ones are. This last one appears to have broken inside the hub assembly. The car will not move under it'* own power, but the cv shaft is spinning (trans is fine as far as I can tell). I haven't got the car apart and won't for awhile since the snow is looking like its going to stick around for awhile. Just looking at my options. I know the last set came from Advance Auto Parts (bad idea), but I wasn't impressed with the parts from Carquest or Napa. That pretty much sums up the parts stores we have around here.

Back from when I replaced mine I am not aware of any options for heavy duty. Best I can recommend is stick with a good manufacturer, like Moog for example.

ZZP has special built CV Shafts for W Bodies. I wonder what they are doing different to merit a Stage 2 classification.

I'll try and get some Moog ones. Hopefully I'm not going to have some trans issues from this whole debacle too. Having fun trying to find a car trailer with a winch to get the dang thing home.
