Nope, a jtd / v6 outer cv joint is different and won't fit. I'm not aware of any commonality with other models either.

Expensive aren't they?:(

I've often thought about replacing the hub flanges & wheel bearings for std 156 fittings, then using 156 2.5 V6 driveshafts. Its quite a bit of work initially but will make driveshaft replacement a lot cheaper in the future, you can pick up 2.5 V6 driveshafts for not a lot of money.

You can only use 156 2.5 V6 driveshafts if you also use 156 2.5 V6 hub flanges. This is the hub flange:

To change the hub flange you will also need to change the front wheel bearings.

They are thinner yes, at a guess probably 5 or 6mm thinner on the flanged end. I don't know if the main shafts are thinner or not. I should probably weigh some and see if there is a difference.
