  1. I wanted to provide an update regarding this adventure. I returned the GSP half shafts without incident. Ultimately I could not get them to seat properly and the lack of left and right splined ends of the correct length, I believe, could be an issue long term. I managed to purchase OEM 280zxt CV axles from one the members (G-Tech) and completed a rebuild using kits from Rock Auto (BECK/ARNLEY 1032280 and BECK/ARNLEY 1032282). Thank you G-Tech.
