Uprated CV joints in the UK ?

Post by gavsdavs »

Hi there

Seem to be struggling to find where to get these, my inner cv joints have had it, people have commented on uprated versions being a good choice - but where do you get them (preferably in the UK)

No idea about a UK source. I think you'll be looking across the pond for uprated ones.
When I was at Patrick's on Friday I understood he was having some issues in getting them shipped over.

The inner CV joint is mr2 turbo. the drivers side has a different shaft.

However i don't think it was new when it went on in 2012, so it's of unknown origin (and maybe not a good place to build from)

Having a look at that driveshaft shop, twosrus have some at a price.

Yeah I spoke with Paul, he has pattern OEM replacements and a set of HD balls and cages for OEM.
OEM bits are long since discontinued I think
I need balls, cages and the inner races on both sides and i'm not sure I want to put new balls and cages into the flaky cv joints i have. New sets are on the way

What did you go for? Febi Bilstein make "pattern" replacements for turbo spec CV's but they're weaker than stock.

Sadly a weird twist of scheduling fate means my car is probably going to be roadworthy by the 30th, but I'm not able to make it.
