    The axles are the same but the ring and pinion gear ratios are different. You can't use an automatic gear in a 5-speed and vice versa.

    Sorry, I thought you were talking about the rear differential!! You don't have one! I don't know if the FRONT axles are the same on M/T and A/T. I would guess they are different but only at the tranny end. The wheel and hub side would be the same. You may need to get M/T axles.

    I would post your question again asking if you can use FWD A/T axles in a M/T car. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
