Yes you will need the special use once bolts , cv boot oh and spring compressors.

I dont have any spares driveshafts left :cry: for sale.
Mine is a rotational clicking that can be felt through the car when I turn left and is worse when the car is loaded up. There was loads of oil on the wheel when I removed it.

It has to be that really eh? As the tripod spider at the other end should be fine.

So I can just buy the CV joint and attach it to the driveshaft?

No just the handiest for checking on parts. GSF or other companies may do the same. Its just there is a Eurocarparts depot close to my work so I always check there.
