Default CV Shaft rebuilder

Iím looking to take a cv shaft for a VW to a shop to have rebuilt. Factory VR6 engine and transmission, keep blowing out the passenger shaft every couple weeks. Tried a shaft from orielly and advance. Both crap. The factory shaft lasted from 2002 to January 2018. Iím not sure why these aftermarket shafts keep blowing but Iím over it and a guy I know is giving me a factory shaft that needs new boots and I donít have the tools to rebuild so Iíd rather take it somewhere to be done professionally.

Any info on shops that do this work would be great.

Thanks

So do you just need a new boot and grease?

Well turns out it needs parts in it. The used shaft we got was blown but it’s much beefier than the aftermarket shafts. Needs more than grease and boot

Ok. Cant help then.

How about buying a new one from the dealer or getting a used one from salvage that doesnt need parts.
