Yes, constant velocity drive shafts. They're called many other names because each shaft is half the distance between xmission and wheel. One on the left front wheel, one on the right front wheel. Some have a metal shell on one side with a rubber bellows on the other end. When cv shaft snaps in half, it should be obvious as you can compare the damaged one against the other shaft that isn't damaged.

Have someone in the car move the shift lever as many times as necessary as you look in the engine bay for the other end of the shift cable linkage. If I'm not mistaken, turn the ignition switch to the first detent, ACCessary position, not ON. This allows moving the shift lever without depressing the brake pedal.
