      That is good to know that they won't work.

      I deleted references to the Borg joints, so hopefully that buries that idea.

      I take that back. Aftermarket Borg joints don't have the necessary range-of-motion.

      Here is some handy ETKA part information on the universal shaft:

      The part probably comes as a complete shaft.

      If the play is bad and suggests serious wear, then you can find a joint off a later car, press the old one off, press replacement on, stake the shaft...

      Right.

      I think if I used a thinner inner nut, I might be able to match what you did, which is the way I was inclined to do it in the first place; I would get a couple of extra threads exposed on...

      Kamzcab86, my strut rods do not extend has high as yours (my struts are Bilstein's Touring Class).

      Just by looking, I'd say yours have an extra cm in height compared to mine.

      Because of that, I...

      Thank you. I am glad it helped you.

      It was a long post and could have been written better. Maybe I can work on it some more, but at least all of what anyone needs to know is there.

      Great kit,...

      Congratulations on solving the puzzle.

      Never saw that issue here before: possibility of no indexing or clocking spline!

      I am curious if that is mentioned in the Bentley manual.

      One pin flywheels are heavier, too. I'd have to look at my notes, but I think about a pound more than the two pin wheels.

      I always do it this way. Both wheels will come up close to even so only one jacking is necessary.

      Good idea to set the parking brake and/or chock a rear wheel, if I may add.

      I take it you are wanting to use your old 90mm inner joint axles with a 5-speed transmission replacement that already has 100mm drive flanges.

      Not supposed to fill it up all the way. In other words, don't top it off.

      Also, there is a overflow system to an aux. reservoir. Check that the lines are open.
