Default CV Axle?

Hey I'm thinking about replacing the CV axles since the boot is ripped on the passenger side one and when I turn left it makes a weird sound. (yes you would think it to be the bearings but they have been replaced) I looked through O'reilly Auto Parts and got a little confused. There is a CV Shaft and CV Half-Shaft. What's the difference?
I'm also thinking about replacing the rears since last time we checked I think I recall seeing some grease down there as well. Theres a guy selling rears of his 02ish WRX would that fit with an 01 Impreza RS by any chance?

There's been problem's with after market axle's being out of balance.

You might want to rebuild or buy high quality axle's.

I work for oreilly's, we just have a million and a half names for the same thing in our cataloug. A CV half shaft is the same thing as a CV shaft. The axles we sell are fine, I have two in my car. Buy the new Masterpro axle though, dont buy the cheaper A1 Reman's, those arent as good. Replacing the half shaft is a pretty easy job, PM me with any questions and ill help you out.
