    I know it doesn't help you now (I've only just seen this thread) but have a look at https://jandrcvjoints.co.uk/
    They do one for your car, I used them myself for both my driveshafts for my Civic when I went from a D series to a B series. They came the next day and were packaged well with new nuts too. They also have a 2 year warranty.

    I know it's too late for you but hopefully it helps someone else.

    I got the dreaded 60mph vibration, so I may need new driveshafts as well. Are both driver and passenger side the same for a CL7?
    The shafts at jandrcvjoints look very cheap compared to everything else I have seen so far. Are they really good?

    Now that is a warning flag for me. Did you get the shafts from somewhere else?

    I bought mine through ebay which said they accept returns up to 30 days. I then checked their terms and conditions on their site which states:
    "REFUNDS POLICY
    68. When you return Goods to us:
    69. because you cancelled the Contract (22) (Consumer Rights), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible
    and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case we will refund the price
    of the Goods to be returned in full, excluding the cost of sending the Goods to you. However, postage costs are non
    refundable, so you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to us;"

    So I don't understand who has told you they don't accept returns. I wouldn't deal with a company who wouldn't accept returns.

    They are cheap, but with a two year warranty it was either take a chance on some second hand OEM ones from ebay, get ripped off by a dealer, or give these a try with nothing to lose. I've done 3,000 miles with them since November, which is mainly stop start around the ring road, and I have no complaints. They may fall apart by 5,000 miles but we'll have to wait and see.

    Sorry to keep bugging you, if I may ask, how much was it all together? I'm also not very keen on putting unknown quality stuff in my car. I do ~12K a year, and travel with my son to fencing tournaments, so my car needs to run like a Swiss clock, the way it has done so far.

    they wouldn't accept the returns as i fitted to car then realised it didnt fit then they wouldn't take the return because it was then used.

    That's really arsey, thanks for the heads up. I will say their shafts are quality made but customer service is very important especially online.
