Is a part number stamped on the front CVs somewhere?
One size fits all does not apply for the Leone series vehicles. I have a 1986 carby (auto) wagon as a parts donor car, which has a different diameter CV spline.
I attempted to pull the CVs apart and turn two of CVs into one from the parts off both vehicle. This only worked for a few km before the CV failed and became noisy again.
You could try counting the splines on your shafts and using that info in a search. Part number is very unlikely to be stamped on the shaft itself.

Silverbullet is correct. The MPFI has the larger 25 spline diff stub axle, same size as the EJ inner CV joint.
The carb and auto units are all 23 spline count and have a smaller stub axle (same as the MY/brumby).
I don’t have a part number but there are aftermarket units available with the larger stub axle size.
I pulled the noisy axle out today and counted up the the splines. 25 at the transmission end 30 at the wheel end.
I'll order a pair and can not check with the seller to make sure they are the right CVs.
