Hello

Hoping someone can help identify which axle is what for the car. When I bought the shell it came with 4 axles but non were labelled. Car is a manual and has LSD

Thank you

I can at least say that the one of the far right is for the rear LSD diff. And all but the far left have ABS tone rings. Those can be knocked off if you don't have ABS or moved over if you need one.

I'm sure somebody will be along who knows the rest.

I don’t have abs, do they just pry off or do I just leave them on with no effect?

Is far right the drivers side or passenger?

The ones on the left were boxed together so assuming those are both fronts then

On an AWD (not sure about FWD), front driver axle is two pieces. The CV axle has a female section that connects to the half shaft. The half shaft has a carrier bearing which mounts to the engine block. The side closest to the carrier bearing is what connects to the female side of the CV axle.

Edit: yeah, what ^^he said

I really don’t have much idea. But the two on the left look like the same thing to me except that one (the right of the two) has the ABS ring. They are not for the driver front as that has the intermediate shaft in an AWD application and the outer shaft does not have male splines on both ends. My guess would be passenger front.

The others, again, look like the same thing to me except one, the one on the right based on what Steve said, is for an LSD rear. No idea which side it would be for, though.

Aftermarket versus OEM? Auto versus manual?

Check Rock Auto as they have specs for all different varieties of front axles there. You can check the compressed length versus what they list. I have posted in the past that the compressed length of an AWD front right axle for a manual transmission is 25-1/4 inches.

Just ordered a new pair for the front. Looks like passenger side is supposed to be 25”

Looking on the forum I’m being pointed in the far right axle is the passenger side rear.
