CV drive shafts again

Should also add the ones made by Spyder which incorporate a single doughnut and a U/J.

So in the UK the choices are:

  • Sue Miller / Kelvedon, full CV joint, around ?600
  • TTR, U/J & sliding spline, ?500 (plus VAT?)
  • Spyder, Single doughnut & U/J, ?488 plus 2x?85 for new doughnuts.

Compare these prices to a full set of doughnuts ?90 x 4 (?360).

I've read an awful lot about these options and to my mind only a full CV joint solution should be considered if you are definitely doing away with doughnuts. I have never heard of anyone regretting fitting them.
