Default CB Shaft / Axel Uogrades?

My 02 Jetta 1.9L has a problem with snapping it's driver's CB shaft. I was wondering if anyone has found a more heavy duty bolt on shaft. The car is now on it's FIFTH shaft.
Any help would be appreciated!

Stop using Chaxles, get an OEM shaft. And make certain the powertrain is centered and aligned properly and that all the mounts as well as suspension bits are tight.

What is a "CB" shaft? Circuit Breaker maybe? Raxles are garbage as well?

You have to understand what you are doing with that "upgrade", as some of those cars used the tripod style inner joints, which are most certainly NOT an upgrade, LOL.
