I have a 99 with ripped boots on both front axles. I have been putting off replacing them for a while now and I think its time I get it done. Both of them have been ripped for more then one year (~15k miles)
Surprisingly I have no problems with them at all, no noises, no grinding.
So I dont know if I should rebuild them or replace them.
If I was to replace them, are rebuilt subaru oem axles reliable?

Given the fact you've abused your's running them ripped for so long I would replace, even if the previous owner of your recon parts abused them you'll at least have a warranty!

Have you done either yet?

It's surprising that there aren't any signs of damage. I'd recommend that you replace the boots with "cheap" ones from NAPA (~$17/each; includes grease, clamps, and circlips), just in case they're about to start going bad.
