The aftermarket are actually different...the genuine are a sealed unit, whereas the proline/etc are tapped with a zerk and the boot is different (cheaper in my opinion). I "borrowed" an end from Huff, and he was not pleased when I handed him back a Proline
. So I ordered up a genuine from RN and took the Prolines and put them in a box of trail spares.
