    Hmm - purely as I needed to do inner and outer CV's and ECP didnt seem to list the inner CV but had the full Driveshaft at a good price..

    Lets see I guess - will keep the old shaft and worst come to worst can fit two new CV joints to that whilst its off the car etc.

    Cant believe that they will sell these if they just crumble like jelly - lol

    Tried them via ebay and they said they dont do the shaft for mine - just cv joint.

    Oh lets see how this q-drive one goes.. I can build my old one with Cv joints if it fails...
