I got a line on a brand new set of RCV D44 axle shafts for $800 OTD. I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a Revolution Front Axle Kit 30Spl (5-7166X Joint) @ $1033 plus freight. Seems like a no brainer but I have no experience with RCV shafts. Thoughts

Warranty and durability are great according to the online community. Ring and pinion becomes the fuse is why I went with cheap import shafts. Up to you really, but $800 sounds like a deal.
