    Does anyone know who manufacturers CV joint which has splines looking like the pictured one? It’s a 110 CSW 2001. The previous owner fitted reinforced axles and CV joints, but I have no clue who made them ...

    Your picture would suggest that whoever made them if they are claiming to be "re-enforced" did a fairly poor job and I would be looking to go back to standard or if still wanting uprated go with one of the more reputable companies..

    Sorry not, it’s gone. I will soon take apart the other side and then I can take a snapshot.

    well the axles are for sure strong, and the design of the splines could actually be very strong. It looks like the splines only go half through but it’s actually only offset, half of the length. Not sure if it makes sense. But why the design is done like this - no clue

    Could it be a Salisbury front axle as fitted to some special military Landy's?
