    888 driveshaft question

    guy im supposed to be buying 888 from called today, to say the knuckle on the driveshaft had gone, hence makes a noise while driving, so said to me can leave a deposit and pick up next wk. he says he ordered part from germany as the 888 one is different from the normal coupe zlet, i thought the parts all same aprt from dressing,ie interior,kit.
    what is he on about, what is this knuckle on driveshaft? is it different to normal zlets? he says costs £200, does tha seem right

    Never heard about a knuckle on a driveshaft, is he talking about the CV Joint? he's talking crap either way, drivetrain was the same as Z20LET's in coupe turbo's.

    If it's left handside driveshaft it costs a lot more than that as said their is an inner joint mine costed £400 and odd with my discount, they are the same mine came in 2days from VX, and if it is the part that i am thinking about they don't go just like that, had to replace mine because i took avoiding action and went up a kerb to miss the car that and the wheel was the only thing damaged though check and ask questions as this could have been a front end job
