Think we're at cross-purposes here. Are you counting the "splines" around the outer edge of the CV joint? as I wouldn't call them splines, not sure what I would call em to be honest, but they're the things that the ABS sensor reads.
I'm thinking more about the splines that are on the shaft itself that locates into the CV joint as I know there are two different types. One type being an actual pig to get off when you have to change the CV boot.
They think it's all over, it is now!

Ken, OP must be talking about the number of ABS ring segments which is alway 90 for BXs. There are three lots of actual splines on the driveshafts but none of them is ever anywhere near half of 90.
