    For CV joints the best and only are Lobro .
    SKF wheel bearings are one of the best (my opinion) If you get a German brand like Febi would also be good.
    I don't know why JKA have it down as they are the manufacturers,they don't manufacturer s###e only sell it.

    CVs are Lobro and the bearings are Febi apparently.

    The GKN ones are way more expensive.......

    But they also reserve the right:

    Products and packaging are subject to change or substitution without prior notice. Every effort will be made to despatch the product specified. However in the event of supply difficulties with any products listed, we reserve the right to substitute goods without prior notice.

    Lobro or deal with what you have. I have tried other options . ...they are all crap. Buy once, cry once.. ...as with any quality part.

    Bit concerning if you order and pay for the GKN ones from JK, although the listing states GKN, in the details, the manufacturer apparently is “JustKampers”, and they reserve the right to supply similar, as per my previous post. o_O

    I shopped around not long ago for GKN CV's for my T25 and Campervan Culture in the UK worked out cheapest even with shipping. Initially they did accidentally send me just 1 CV and boot etc instead of the full kit but rectified it and posted the others at their expense. Arrived in a few days. Not sure whether the exchange rate has changed but might be worth considering

    Just to clarify Rosscoe.......... GKN make Lobro, so they are one in the same, but referenced in either name, by members here.;)

    I would hate to order and pay for GKN Lobros, and be sent substitutes from Preservation Parts, with the explanation that the parts I Actually ordered were “out of stock”. :mad:

    They have the right to change without notice,:mad:I have the right not to purchase from them without notice. o_O. That statement would make me think twice before purchasing.:(

    And it should as it places all the 'power' with the provider to substitute & no ability for you to decline the substitution:mad:.
    Just buy Lobro from someone whom can GUARANTEE that;).
    Let's get a comment from @Kai .
    Cheers

    I would rather them tell me they are unavailable,o_Othen give me a second rated product,that's what they are doing if you aren't getting Lobro you are getting second class rated product:(:mad: Bit off old fashion customer service goes a long way:) not really difficult in the modern age with a computer :rolleyes:to send message to a customer to notify them.:D
    Your right @David H buy from who can guarantee the product that is advertised.
