    There's a myriad of options for Driveshafts in Etka, those part numbers I read are listed in my version for your car, and as always part numbers are given in good faith etc.

    If Dan can personally vouch for those part numbers then I'd go with them.

    Cheers fella, can I ask y u replaced them?
    im at whits end with a vibration I've got from the front at most speeds but really noticeable on mway, steering doesn't shake atall and I've replaced engine mounts, dmf etc and now I'm thinking its got to be either driveshafts or worse gearbox although I put it in neutral on mway and have even turned engine off when it's quiet! And vibration still there, wheels all good too but would have thought they'd shake steering wheel so I'm just down to these two things now or I'm buggered!
    second hand driveshafts are cheap and only take ten mins to change do thinking I'm gonna try both of them see how it goes

    Change in OEM manufacture, rectify a design fault, change to one of the sub assembly parts or slight design change to make it compatible with other models, end of the day you never know unless it's a common fault like the well known B7 170 injectors.
