BTDT on my '91 200 tq. Front CV makes a ringing noise in the prop shaft
under hard accelleration. Got the replacement for about $70 either from Blau
or TPC, sorry can't remember. A lot better than $800 for a new prop shaft!
Now I need a new U joint in my urq tho'. Anybody got a parts 4kq laying
around they want to sell the prop shaft off of?
