    the less you drive it the better chance of the joint being ok once a new joint is fitted and greased, you will be fine to drive home dude and being an inner theres less movement

    I was kinda hoping i could drive home as dont really want to fork out for recovery. Another question is do I get a cv boot based on the shell or the engine?

    The driveshaft is made up of two CV joints, inner and outer. Inner is around £20 to replace. It wont harm the actual shaft itself no.
