Nissan Skyline GT-R Axles or Driveshafts

Right side axle for an R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R

Axles, driveshaft, propshaft, half shafts, Constant velocity(CV) shafts often all refer to the same parts, but different regions of the world use different terms. To me, we call the shaft that extends from the front or rear differential to each wheel an axle. On the front because you not only have up and down, in and out, but back and forth movement, they have a tendency to wear overtime and split.  Once the boot splits, the grease is tossed out, and you will eventually get metal on metal operation and failure.

If you take an axle to most decent axle rebuilding shops, they can figure out the boots that you need. They are not anything super unique. Its a little more difficult if you are doing it yourself, and need to figure out part numbers and cross references.  Below are the Nissan numbers, and I will fill in cross references as we get them.
