Where to buy QUALITY IS300 AXLE?

So my drivers side axle seems to be going bad... i'm getting a click-click-click at any speed over 30mph as long as i'm driving for a bit...

No parts store around me carries an axle for the car and even the lexus dealership thought it was odd the axle was bad ( the car does have 142,000 miles though and is dropped 2" with eibach springs)...

The dealership wants $645 for an axle... which is absolutely absurd... I looked on rockauto and it's only $70 but I have to send my axle in to them first... which means i'll have about 2 weeks of downtime on the car which is unacceptable for me because it's my daily driver.

Anyone know of a place to get a quality axle from online? Thanks for any help.

I have purchased used axles from wrecker yards before with good results. That will solve your downtime problem. try online car-parts.com to find one near you.

You dont give your location so I can look for you.
