I'm looking for replacements birfields for my lj80. I've found japanparts GI-801 listed as replacement ( http://db.japanparts.it/cjapan/dettArt. ... 01&fr=4470" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ), but i've noticed, that this CV-joint also suitable for suzuki cars with macpherson front suspension, and this is looking very suspicious. Does anybody try this (or anything else) CV-joint for replacing stock on LJ80?
Thank you.

I have a very hard time believing it is the same as a Suzuki Swift CV joint. The Swift is the same as a Geo Metro, which are still plentiful in North America, so it shouldn't be too hard to look at one.

I'm request one CV from local part store, they claim me, that their database is correct and it will fit LJ80. Delivery will be on July 20. I'll write results as i'm try it.
