My opinion here, but if I needed to replace CV axles on my 99 (It's got AVM hubs as well), I'd upgrade. Instead of buying 99 CVs, I'd buy 01+ CVs. I'd buy a set of 01+ hubs. I'd install all of it and delete the hub locks all together.

It sounded like this isn;t the first time the hub locks have broken. How many how many times do they need to break before it pays for a set of newer hubs.

FWIW I've broken them two or three times, but not in the same way as yours. My truck is getting an upgrade to live axles (AKA hubs always locked in can't disconnect). Other upcoming alterations are making live axles a necessity, but it was going to happen even before those plans were made.
