No - they are different. Gen 1's are shorter.

It's not appropriate to ask which is stronger - they are used for different purposes. DOJ's don't have as many degrees of freedom, thus can't be used where CV's can.

By definition they are two different ideas.

DOJ= Dual offset joint

They are used primarily as inner joints on the Subaru. They will slide in and out as well as rotate.

CVJ= Constant Velocity Joint

These are a fixed(doesn't move laterally) joint that will only rotate.
