I drove tremendous mileages in a succession of Ford Scorpios some time ago and the drive shafts used to start knocking, (CV joints going) I used to replace them, then I found out that if you stripped them down and rebuilt them and greased them well they were ok, this was because the stripping and rebuilding meant the balls and carriers went back in different places so cancelling out the wear! Don't quote me but this is what your cheap garage could have done.
Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
