The good news is it's not the rear diff. Has anyone else broken one of these? Can I buy the cv joint by itself without buying a new driveshaft?

Nope, it comes as part of the driveshaft and is not serviceable. Any idea how it broke?

I may have a spare driveshaft... I was keeping it for a spare for when I broke mine.... I suppose I could sell it if you run stuck, and the price is right. I think they are like 1k from the stealership.

It's crap that you can't buy these separately it comes right off the driveshaft except the rubber boot will be a PITA to fit on. I'm going to try calling BMR tomorrow they have a viper cv joint that looks identical. I can't believe I'm the only person that has broken one of these wtf. I was on track Saturday at Putnam Park and it grenaded I'm just glad it's not the rear diff. I'm going to clean it up tomorrow and see if I can figure out who makes it so I can call them direct if BMR doesn't come through.

I got it off and taken apart tonight with the help of a friend - the basket exploded. I suppose it would be re-buildable but I'd prefer to have a new one or an upgraded one. On the other hand I'd rather replace ten of these than one rear diff lol. :D

So when the cv joint on the rear of the driveshaft breaks everyone considers that a broken driveshaft? BS I'm replacing the cv joint and I'll posting pictures and the source for the cv joint when I find it... Or I'll start a CTS-V cv joint manufacturing company and become a vendor lol. It can't be that hard to figure out the manufacturer and replace the cv joint WTF?

I had a motor mount completely seperate. When the dealer fixed that I had a bad vibration at about 1500 RPM in all gears. Turns out it was the rear CV Joint. They had to put in a new driveline....

I have one that is bad that I could give to you. I'd have to find it though. PM me if you want it.

Mine went bad when the 6 bolts backed out at V-Day II. Did you check those to see if they are tight?

I have one that the CV joint is good on, but the back CV boot has a rip in it. Let me know if you want it.

The the OP, try Cleveland Pick A Part. That's where I got my replacement. Ya I learned like you that the driveshaft isn't serviceable too....I was PISSED! $1200 from the stealership, I think it was $200 from CPA.
