who sells axles?

Hey guys, for those of you that don't go to the dealer for everything...

what options other than OEM are there for axles? I've replaced on audi/mercedes/vw and many domestics, there's always a good quality aftermarket at a fair price.

My drivers front needs to be changed and I see 2 options.
1. OEM at around $1000 for the part
2. GKN for around $300 but none anywhere available in the country

anyone else I should be looking at? The thought of spending $1000 for a part to put on a car worth $4-5000 bothers me

Autopartsway has the front right in the USA but they have both on their Canadian site.
I bought my front left from them and will be buying the front right soon, it's clicking.
GKN is the OEM for these. I compared them side by side and they are identical.
