Re: Rear driveshaft joint

I recently had to replace the front CV joint in my 87 CSTQ.  The mechanic 
said that the CV joint should be lubed every 50-60k miles, but the dealers 
and most shops never do.  (They don't have fittings and must be removed 
from the car.)  If properly lubed, the CV joints should last almost 
inndefinitely, or so he claimed.  Note that the CV joints are not available 
as a replacement part--Audi only sells the whole shaft as a unit.  My "new" 
one came from another car.
