I'm sure they will be.  The bolts came with my replacement driveshaft.  From reading the Forums, it sounds like they are cheaper from VW or SEAT than Ford

If it's the same as mine it's torque to 150Nm then turn through a further 90degrees.  I broke my torque wrench trying to do the 90 degrees bit.  Even with a 750mm breaker bar I could do with a bit more leverage...but then again I don't exercise!

Taken mine off a number of times now and its always a pain to do them up... and then undo the buggers again!

Question actually, has anyone else though about taking the slack out of the driveshaft? OEM and AM ones do the same - they move in/our about 2mm because there is a gap between the circlip and the shaft at the tripod joint. I keep wondering about adding a washer/shim there to take out this slack (the tripod's supposed to do this movement after all) and its the only car I've had that does it - just debating with myself if it would tighten up the front enough to bother :)
