Which Axles? OEM, Insane Shaft, or Other?

I'm in need of a set of axles for my 06 Accord V6 6speed and can't decide what to go with. I've used cheap Advance/Napa axles in the past on other cars and honestly they have always left me unhappy. They don't hold up.

I normally go with OEM axle and I've been happy with these since I have 220k on them. However, the price is crazy. A quick search turned up lots of guys recommending the Insane Shaft axles, but they seem to be more geared towards high performance engines. For me with a stock J30 who doesn't go to the track would I be better off just spending the extra money for the OEM ones, or should I go with the Insane Shaft axles, or should I go with others? I want something that will last another 150-200k as well as something that isn't going to vibrate badly all of the time.

yeah.. don't go advance or autozone axle. I have them now and they are starting to click and pop. Try getting used axles from car-parts.com. Look sfor the low millage one.

You can always repair them for less...just throwing that option out there. There's gotta be rebuild kits available for our axle ends...and I believe you can also find a banding tool for cheap to finish the job.
