Not sure if they sell them for Subarus, but I got both axles for a VW Passat a few weeks ago at Napa Autoparts. They are "Napa" brand and come with lifetime replacement.

I agree...I've had good luck with the Napa axles and the free replacement feature if one fails is pretty sweet too. When I bought mine they were like $65 or $70.

My friend went thru 3 axels on each side of his 01 S. They kept using remanufactured aftermarket axels and with in weeks the vibrations would return. The issues didn't go away until they used genuine subie axels.

Just to clarify my post above. An OEM remanufactured axle is a genuine Suby axle. These are the axles the company I work for has the best luck with. The same goes for VW in my experience.
