I will be putting on the car's fifth set of axles soon. First set was from the factory and lasted 70k miles. Second set was installed by the dealer and lasted about 15k miles. Third set was FEQ chinese junk and one lasted two weeks, the other two months. Fourth set was Cardone reman installed last winter- the boots are still good, but the grease slinged out of both a few weeks ago. I'm replacing the driver's side again very soon, since I will be replacing that wheel bearing.

I do track the car so expect more life out of the axles if you don't . . .
