Which 9-5 axles for Viggen?

So my inner cv's went out on my Viggen a while ago and I've slowly been doing quite a bit of rebuilding on the car to get it back in good shape. I know that early 9-5 axle ends fit onto the Viggen shaft, which is great, however the 9-5 Chinese axles I got from eEuro, Empire brand, don't swap. The tripod bearing from the Empire axle has a different number of splines and the inner diameter of the companion flange is smaller than the genuine Saab tripod bearing
My guess is that a lot of Chinese manufactured axles use a mass produced tripod bearing to keep costs down, and that works fine if you're swapping the entire axle. I suppose I could have gotten the year wrong when I ordered the 9-5 axles, which is possible. I'll have to go back and look. Perhaps that was the problem? Did they change the tripod bearing on Aeros?

So, short of buying used 9-5 axles, who here has made the swap and which brand and year-model axles did you use? I don't want to buy more 9-5 axles and have them not fit. Also, if anyone is interested in an unused set of 9-5 axles, I'll make you a deal!

Thank you for any help!

Pretty sure it's 99-01 axles that you can use

Complete axles?
I was under the impression that it was just the Inner that was 9-5, and the rest was 9-3.
You had to buy actual Viggen axles, or piece-together a 9-5 and 9-3 axle.

It appears from searching that only partial 99-01 9-5 Aero axels are available, and the inner companion flange is not included. Fairly certain that the only difference between a Viggen axle and 9-5 Aero axle is the shaft length.

Well, just got off the phone with the guys from Swedish-English Spares and they've got what I need, and they're in my back yard! It's going to feel really good to drive the old Saab again.
