    Hello

    I need a drive-shaft inner CV joint, N/S, for my LCR.

    TPS is quoting £120+VAT :blink:

    Does anyone know of an alternative? (Euro Car Parts don't have in stock and need part number to order / quote. Anyone know the part number?)

    Ta :)

    I have only used their CV boot kit which was cheap and still working well. There is differing opinions on their CV Joints

    The reason I posted was that they do have the Q-Drive ones in stock.

    And they also have the GKN version, but both the GKN and Q-Drive are the "Wheel Side" CV, I need the gearbox-side CV - aka inner. But thanks anyway.

    J and R CV Joints looks promising, I'll check 'em out.

    Thanks for the advice, much appreciated :)

    Had a Google and it seems that both J&R and Q-Drive's CV joints have a very mixed reputation: some punters say they last for years, others report vibrations / 'clicking' almost immediately after fitting, which suggests inconsistent build quality.

    GKN is the manufacturer of the OE-spec CVs sold by TPS / stealers. And the difference in cost - eg, £29+VAT for a J&R driveshaft incl both CVs, whereas one GKN CV joint costs £120+VAT - suggests a case of "if it sounds too good to be true, then...".

    So, I've ordered a GKN. And after all, my LCR's factory-fit GKN CV joint has lasted 15 years.

    But thanks for advice folks :)
