I think you are lucky the outer portion of spline broke off. The other failure mode is stripping of the splines, which could also do damage to the splines in the differential.

I don't know if I have seen a cross reference to the inner and outer CV joints. Speculation tells me the inners are Toyota, but I don't know if anyone has confirmed if the axle spline is the same.
