I'm in the process of trying to identify the CV joint used on the UK shafts, as I need a new boot. Currently down to VW/Audi or Ford possibly Granada.

My driveshafts are the Sue Miller items. They look the same joints as in the above photo, just different adapters to the drive flanges.

Looks as though they are from a Ford Granada circa 1972. I have ordered a repair kit locally and will update on progress.

Looking at the latest Club Lotus News it would appear that from the article on the various CVs available you have Elantrikbits shafts. Especially as I see you are in Australia!
I'm sure Col will come along and confirm...

Certainly looks like them, with their standard GKN Lobro CVs

Makes sense since you're in Australia as well!
