Well after asking around various parts suppliers in the UK nobody is prepared to supply a new joint for less than 100 ($160).

Also reading around it seems export WJs did get the double cardan upgrade, I can't find any driveshafts that aren't rezeppa-rezeppa.

Plus reading through lots of posts on the subject there's little conclusion if it's the lift that's the issue or the reverse boot setup just being vulnerable to contamination and abuse.

So given that I do low miles in mine, mainly on road and only with a 2" lift I'm going to see about importing one of these cheap joint kits from the US, fitting that and seeing how long it lasts.

Took the old cv off today, even with the clip off it took some pounding to get it off the shaft.
