Autozone CV halfshafts any good?

I am looking to order a new left CV halfshaft from Autozone, specifically GCK brand, any issues? It is $109.99 for a new one with lifetime warrenty (no core charge), and hopefully no issues with fit or ABS speed sensors?

Both of my CVs are Autozone Duralasts ($60-ish)... they both went in without any issues (I don't have ABS, though) and they are running fine for the past few years.

No problems here with AutoZone

However, Advanced Autoparts sold me a f*cked up CV shaft - missing a metal band and the ring at the tip was too small so it fell out while I was driving and messed up my transmission a bit.

Shame on me for not inspecting it before I installed it, but I'm not going back to Advanced...
