Default DRIVESHAFT

Hi
Would like a bit of advice on my CV driveshaft, last year had the whole driveshaft replaced after having a knocking from the rear drivers side ,all well untill coming home from a trip and noticed a knocking again when I went around a roundabout and when I took a right turn,
now been doing a bit of research and it maybe loose bolts (6 spline ) or maybe grease dried up ?
so im going to try and tighten them and see if thats my problem,
but would a drive shaft after say 2000 miles fail this early ? or could it be a cheap inferior replacement fitted ? or could it be something else failing ?
and if it is the driveshaft what does anyone suggest change both sides (whole shafts) at the same time ?
and whats the best ones to purchase , was looking at the brickwerks ones at 180 each, as I don't mind paying for good quality
appreciate your views folks
