Gear changing Clunk Gone....

Hi all ever since I bought my 2.2 159 there has always been a cluck between gear changes which was quite annoying but managed to get use to it...

So last week I was reversing out of a car park and heard a funny clicking sound for a few meters then it went and did not return, so I asked my mechanic and he said o/s drive shaft was worn so replaced this with a new driveshaft £135 with uprated spider bearing and to my delight no clucking at all between gear changes and driving is so much more better and tighter, So what I have read before about the clucking being characteristic is not true. Now just need to replace a front hub now horrible bearing noise which I cant live with
