The inner CV joints from the M45 to the G37S are not compatable. The G37S spline count is less and slightly smaller diameter. This in not a bad thing though.
I took them out of the car and realized how much room there is for movement and there ia pleanty of room left in the G37S inner CV joint to accomodate the M45 suspension travel.
When I first installed them the short side was too short and the long side axle was too long. Thjis was an easy fix because when i reinstalled the boot I realized they make the CV joint air tight. So when I installed the longer axle it compressed the joint creating positive pressure inside the joint like a balloon. I simply let out some air and they now fit like a charm.
So to conclude:
G37S Rear axles are 100% compatable when using the G37S rear differential.
I still have not been able to get my VDC OFF, SLIP, RAS lights to turn off. I'm going in to get the STeering angle sensor zero'd out on monday to see if that helps and if it doesn't I have ordered the Dakota Digital SGI-5c to recalibrate the transmission speed sensor.
