Evo 8 snapped rear drive shaft. Help please



New Member
Hi, my evo 8 380 bhp went out today for and essential journey to asda. I came out of a junction and went gently into boost in 1st gear and I got a huge bang from the rear end of the car. My O/S/R driveshaft knuckle has popped apart / broken inside at the CV joint . I will buy another shaft but and fit but my questions are...

why has this broke? Are they weak or is it likely that I had a weak/tired shaft. The car was not launched and never gets launched.

And is It just a simple swap or are there any tips I need to know prior to fitting a new one.

Thanks and stay safe.
