Turbo CV Joint Belleville washers

To use or not to use, that is the question. I know that there are a few threads about these cupped washers but nothing real specific, just general statements. Some shops claim to eliminate them when rebuilding CV's (Vertex) but before I do, I am missing one of the dam things and will search around before I bite the bullet. I have not seen any official text which states that they can be eliminated, so I am still a bit skeptical. There's too much axle play between the star and the C-clip when they are not in place. Most other shafts (bmw, etc) do not use the Belleville. Just checking to see if anyone has some laying around. The PO on my car had evidently replaced one CV boot/joint and tossed the Belleville washer. My only other alternative is to make one, get one close to spec and then have it machined to the other washer's dimensions...yikes!
