    left or right? Did you replace with a GM part?

    I broke my left one years ago. I broke my right one a couple of weeks ago, but it also tore up the brand new differential. I asked the dealer why wasn't I advised to replace the CV Axel when the differential was installed, the car is old... Their response was, we only advise to replace items that are broke. I don't like that approach in general, I expect the dealer to be forward thinking especially with how those two parts interact. Nevertheless, I'm debating between Duralast (Autozone) or GM - might be a parts delay... So I'm seeing what other people have done.

    I wasn't too far behind, I was in the 80's on the right Axel. $800 - mostly labor? Stock or after market bushing?
