    Hi all

    I have a python drive p110t system installed
    Below is a link to what I have

    I need to replace both cv joints. They are well beyond being reconditioned.
    Python drive want £400 plus vat. The shaft is still good.
    So I am looking at getting quality replacements from GKN.
    I have managed to find what seems to be a suitable replacement, same amount off teeth and dimensions etc. However How do I work out what the plunge is on my existing cv joints ?
    What is it on the cv joint that determined the plunge?
    Is there anything else I need to be bare in mind when looking for replacement cv joints?
    Has anyone replaced CV joints on python drive with alternatives before ?

    Many Thanks
