Yep, those rubber X Joints were an absolute aberration, with a hot 1275 they only lasted days. :shock:

The boot I used is the mini inner pot joint boot. I compared the size and shape of the mini boot and the original boot, I could see no
discernible difference. I'm going with it as in the driveshaft it has a lot less movement than in a mini.
No science, just a gut feeling.
Must admit that I had not looked at the CV boot GSV1073 and it certainly looks like a promising alternative to using the normal CV type boot.

Appreciate the help and input from everyone.

Thanks
Mark
