I would expect the drive flanges to be identical between the two ... a quick
check of the FA should tell the tale ... even if there were some
incompatibility there you could swap the flanges ...

I've got to believe that by mixing and matching 5kQ and 4kQ components you
should be able to find the parts you'd need even if the urq parts were
unusable ...

PS - I was at Carlsen yesterday picking up the clutch return spring for one
of my V8s ... even with code red the blasted thing took 2 months to arrive!
... anyway I looked through the window into the service bays and saw a very
nice looking 4kQ up on the lift next to the window ... that teal blue color
I really like ... anyway there were no less than three service techs huddled
around under the front drive ... looked like they were measuring something
like the half shafts.  I was half tempted to poke my head in the door and
ask them if they needed any help ... :-)
