Porsche sells each joint piece seperately. They have changed the joint internals over the years, but the end SHOULD be the same.

Just go to them and let them show you the PET image and pick your number.

Had the same problem before. Spoke to a reputable Porsche tech and the problem of the axles coming loose is remedied by putting Schnorr lock washers with the axle bolts; loctite is optional as long as the lock washers are used and the bolts are torqued down to spec and rechecked after driving.
