Opinion on new front left CV axle

Hi,
the outer boot on my front left CV axle has been ripped for a few months now (just noticed it lately) and I'd like an opinion on what part I should use as a replacement. I plan to replace the entire axle rather than trying to replace only the boot. My Toyota stealership has quoted me $470 CAD + taxes only for the part.

After making a few calls I could have the following:
- 3rd party new: $69 CAD + taxes
- Toyota original, not from Toyota: $128 CAD + taxes

I'm comfortable with the $128 part but I'd like to know if this a part where 3rd party is usually fine.

Thank you!

Craquest ..Toyota copy at around 180 bucks for the complete axle ready to go in , i agree the original toyota part is over priced we usually go with other and so far no problems ...either way average price is around 150 to 180 plus install.

While I'm at it, I understand that I'll need to drain the ATF fluid before I remove the axle as it will leak. I'm at 92K KM and I understand that Toyota Canada recommends to replace the ATF fluid at 96K KM.

Is it enough to just drain/refill the ATF during my axle replacement to consider my 96K KM service "done" or there is more involved for this ATF fluid replacement? It seems that 3 quart should be enough for a drain/refill?

Thank you!

U don't need to drain the loss is minimal when axle replaced u will need to add but if ur do then only makes sense to change it at same time ...think its just under 3 L for auto .
