    Driveshaft/ inner c/v joint supplier

    So i suspect that my inner cv joint (drivers side) maybe shot, as there's a bad vibration on acceleration (2.5v6 galant manual 2002), but i can't find any driveshafts or inner joints on ebay etc. Does anyone know if there's other cars that use the same joint or if the joint can be stripped and the internal bearings sourced and replaced? Surely i don't have to scrap my car just because the driveshaft is shot? Cheers.

    The OEM part number is MR399371 or MN171196. These are the same on LH and RH. There appears to be a compatible item made by Febest, part number 0411EA.

    I have also heard of people swapping the inner joint from side-to-side, as this puts the worn section in a different place, and you can gain a bit of extra life that way.

    The OEM part numbers for full driveshafts for your car will be MN156277 (LH) and MN156278 (RH). Can't see a full shaft replacement listed, but again Febest seem to do an outer joint, 0410033A43.

    Hope this helps you keep your car on the road!

    Plus one for swapping the cups. Unless you plan to accelerate hard in reverse this should be a good and very cheap solution.

    Here is a top tip for you guys that are doing some maintenance on these joints.

    They need a special grease due to the needle bearings. (inner) Mitsubishi Is only selling the gease as a set with Booth and clamps for almost €100,- per side.

    If you just want the grease only, Subaru is selling the grease separate
    for diff side joint (NKG302) Subaru partnumber 28495AE010 (160 grams)
    for wheel side joint (NTTG2218) partnumber Subaru Part Number: 28395AG030

    I paid €17,- for a bottle of grease
