YOUR EVERY NEED
Duralast's full range of auto parts makes it easy to get the right part at the right time. Whether you're changing your oil or rebuilding your engine - Duralast gets the job done right.
Look at the fine print on the box, with a a few exceptions duralast is made in China. You might get lucky but I only try and buy non-essential parts from stores like that. Wiper blades , bulbs, mud flaps etc.
When doing car repair, buy a quality part the first time and fix it once.
Scotty Kilmer suggests dipping the inner CV joint in grease to hold the snap ring in place and make it easier to push into the differential but he calls it the transmission: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH98nX8fb6M
Took Marilyn for a test drive and turned around before I even got off the street. It still sounds like a blender knocking around ice cubes which makes me think someone drained the differential while it was on blocks in my backyard for a month.
Most clicking issues, I have dealt with; were cv axle related but I suppose, anything is possible. Have you pinpointed the sound and is it coming, from the same axle you replaced? It would be nice, to have the car on a lift or jack stands; to have a helper, put the car in gear and you be able, to pinpoint, where the sound is coming from and then, decide what might be the issue. To isolate the noise; you could disconnect, the new axle from the transmission and see if the sound goes away, when you put the car in gear with the car lifted up off the ground. For the less expensive, rebuilt or nex axles; I wouldn't be surprised, if there was a quality control issue, right out of the box (so, don't assume; the new axle is fine, not ignore it as a possible source of the problem). Was this clicking issue; there, to being with and the reason, you replaced the axle, trying to address this issue?
I replaced the axle just because of the torn CV boot and there was some rattling noise. Now it’s just clicking like someone filed down the splines of the right side of the transaxle while I had disassembled for a month on jack stands in my backyard.
Many times, you need the weight, stress and load, to get the noises to make themselves known. We also, sometimes; have someone drive next to you and see if they can hear the noise, where it is coming from (in a deserted parking lot or away from traffic area).

My 99 VWB 2.0L 5 speed manual has no acceleration power. It used to drive fine & had great power, on surface streets. Then 1 day I took it on the freeway & since then the acceleration has slowly decreased. So in the beginning I began putting in fuel injection cleaners & octane boosters that u...
We have a 1998 beetle with about 130,000 miles. The engine is misfiring all cylinders once the car warms up after 10 minutes or after it rains.
We have replaced the spark plugs, wires and coil, mass flow sensor and a few of the vacuum lines. When watching live data it looks like we lose the feed...
