    Hi all

    Just after some advice on what's a good cv joint brand that I can still get for mk3 golf gti 16v running gear. Just done an engine swap and the only ones I could get in a hurry were q drive ones on the cheap. Had to get it out of my mates garage so he could get back to work. The quality ain't great so was looking to get some new ones. Both inner and outer. Unfortunately the originals were stuck in the hubs and stripped the threads getting them out.

    I'll take any recommendations on where to source as well.

    Drive shafts are fine, I'm gonna try my luck with tps and dealer but I reckon they will be expensive. Will report back when I've had a chance to phone them

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think you can go wrong with SKF if you can get them, I've used them over the years and haven't had a problem

    Cheers guys. Like I say those q drive ones really didn't inspire joy. Wouldn't recommend unless it's urgent and even then just as a temp solution.
