I just did my drivers side DSG axle and FAG wheel bearing quieted car down and smoothed steering while turning. The box I got from IDparts.com was still intact not damaged and the axle looked great. There was a plastic protector cap stuck in the bolt hole. The CV boots are the difference as well, the clamps were better design as well. The biggest difference between the GNK and the Chinese is I twisted the axle and held the other end..the GNK had NO twisting movement at all, the Chinese had slop in it and actually twisted a good bit before going rigid. Well worth the money..
