Discovery 1 Halfshaft - Front
There are two different types of halfshaft/C.V. joint assembly: Up to VIN JA032850 (1992), drive is conveyed from the differential via a 10 spline halfshaft, which engages into a C.V. joint inside the swivel housing. Drive is then transmitted through a seperate outer shaft (known as the 'driving member'), which engages in the C.V. joint at its inner end and bolts to the wheel hub at its outer end.From VIN JA032851, a halfshaft is employed, as before (either 10 or 24 spline), but the C.V. joint/shaft is splined to engage in the outer hub, thereby transmitting drive.Vehicles with ABS employ the later type of combined C.V. joint/shaft. However, ABS assemblies are not interchangeable with non-ABS.
