Hi All

I'm looking for a set of front driveshafts for my trusty 2004 2.5 XS (including CV's). I'm based in CT (Noordhoek).

Any advice on this?

TIA

IIRC they are known as not serviceable. And bloody expensive from SSA.
Have a look in this little black book and call the side shaft guy. Maybe he can help.

@FozzieDriver and @Manfred - thanks for your replies.

After a major hunt, I got a set of new front outer CV's, fitted same day, from Auto Station in Bellville. They're SAJCO CV's (locally made).

Really great service and a brilliant price - R3876 (incl. VAT and labour) for both. Compare this to the ~R5000 each (excl. VAT and without labour) from the Scooby agents!

Highly recommend these guys.
