Re: drive shaft issues

CV joints they are cheaper than the shafts. NEver really heard of them dying on Alfa's you doing any burnouts in the car or really hard gearchanges?

Re: drive shaft issues

Check your CV Boots for splits, maybe they've splits and got dirt in, but I too am sceptical about your diagnosis, try them on full lock and dee if you get the knocking when going slowly, if not then your definately barking up the wrong tree. Check your gearbox oil too and top it up, but I suspect it's the drop links, or more the bushes on them have perished.
