Naw, 4/5 speed axles are the same. Right now I'm running the axles from a 88 4 speed sedan in an 87 5spd coup w/e16i. The stock axles are much more beefier than the sedan's but they seem to be working just fine. Come to think of it, The tranny is from an 87 4dr w/e16s.ahardb0dy said:ok, thanks I was just curious if someplace had them any cheaper, I also noticed on the auto parts website that they have different axles for 2wd and 4wd and manual and auto trannys, I thought from what I've read on here that the 5 speed axles are different from the 4 speed axles? but I don't see any mention of that in the axle descriptions??
Slacky said:the shaft that goes into the tranny is the same but then there is a spacer right before the booty like the last cm of shaft that goes in is a fatter/wider peice and those are the differences in axels not sure if the 4 speeds or 5 speeds are difference with the same year but between other models thats the pita
I remember seeing somm about the axle dimensions in the Haynes manual. That's why I was skeptical about putting axles from a sedan into the coup. When trying to compare them side by side, the lengths may be different since the axle joints are designed to move in/out. Wish Blown was around. He knows this stuff really well. I know trannies/axles from any E series are interchangeable but I dunno bout GA's.Slacky said:idk it depends on the year i guess cus i have axles from a auto 87 sentra and they look identical to 89 5 speed axles so maybe your axles will work 2 ways to find out, compare the 2 of the same side when u pull them out or go to your local parts store and see if the part number is the same for both year/types
