One unique feature found on the original classic Mini, MG1100, and Austin America was the rubber joint in the drive (half) shafts. These allow up and down movement of the suspension while transmitting drive to the wheels. Basically, a rubber universal joint. Sold each, including u-bolts. Ref: GCD101, QL5000, MDC101, GCD0101.
Note: Not recommended for high-output engines or when headers are used, due to possible clearance problems.
