If you want to prevent a major car disaster, you should check your driveshaft joints before they self destruct! The best and easy way to do that is to listen and feel the car as you lift off the throttle while getting off a freeway, etc. If you feel a slight vibration- it could be the joints starting to go!
Note, the only Mini application for this part is to repair Hardy Spice type u-joints. Also fits a Sprite , MG Midget , and Morris Minor .
