The otter CV?
Yes It is easier to do the whole shaft if you can't replace the outer CV

So the outside temp is sitting right on 0 - I pull into about a foot of
unplowed snow in a parking lot - decide there must be better places to

Just as an added bonus - I borrowed an 89 chev 4x4 PU - wouldn't even make
my driveway that the 200q had no problems with.
