Driveshaft Compatibility

I'm in need of a front RH driveshaft but they aren't too easy to come across.

Any idea on compatibility from other models? Looking for something to fit the front RH on an ABY,

Do you need the whole axle, or just need CV joints? CV joints are still easy to come by.

Only 3B, ABY, ADU and FWD Coupe with 7A and manual transmission. So, they happen to be very rare.

No, they are the same. Key letters are "FWD".
