Is there any brand you recommend or ones to avoid? Some say you must use OEM and some say avoid Duralast. Just not sure if it is worth paying an extra $150

Hello - the big question as to quality of replacement parts is "How good is good enough?". For the answer - consider the total cost of the project, especially labor. If labor cost to replace a part, even if under warranty, is high - like an axle replacement - higher initial cost for a quality part becomes "cheap" in the bigger picture. Parts quality reputation, as well as warranty, is important. Buy your parts, and labor, from reputable, trusted source.
