Are the older thicker CV joints/axles interchangeable for the new ones?

Yes, you're correct on the spelling and size. It's been awhile since I looked at them. My original bolts were swapped out for the 12 point bolts. I wouldn't go back to the 6 point bolts after using them now.

edit: These are not the right size on this webpage I just googled to get a picture, yours are M10 or bigger.

..and the CV joint bolts are 6 point 10x1.5mm allen head bolts unless someone changed them out to something else.

In '86 Porsche went to a slimmer Lobro CV joint and it's not as strong as the thicker CV joints earlier cars came with and they also went to a strap washer that went under 2 bolts at a time.

The bolts on the earlier thicker CV joints are longer.
