Cautious if buying GSP cv axles shaft

Buyer be aware that i purchased the after market GSP brand CV AXLES SHAFTS about 3 weeks ago for another one of my cars and they were terribly assembled. The right side cv axle's back end came apart as i was trying to install and the bearing pop out completely dry, no grease at all and it was missing the circlip that holds the bearing inside. The right side CV axles was also missing hardware and so i didn't even bother to install that one on the car. That's almost for cause to filing a lawsuit against somebody if i had been driving down the road and that axle come off and damage my tranny or oil pan or tear up my engine or even cause and accident that might have kill someone or myself. Glad i found that problem before it got ugly. Just be cautious as to what after market parts you put on your cars.

hah speaking of which, i ran over soemthing which took out my right cv axle boot years ago.
I went to rockauto for APWI axles that ran like 28 bucks, and never had a problem 70k miles since, and still surviving after a 1.8L engine swap with multiple hard launches LOL
