I have a V2 Sti RA one laying around here for example, but unfortunately the splining / retainer clips don't match up with my axles
Some of the older LSD diff used short and ong splines on the right & left axles, not different length axles (this goes for all JDM LSD diffs before version 3) as well as some NADM subarus that didn't use outie stubs). These axles are very hard to find and mine just started to go.
Anyone know if you can rebuild rear axles?? Not the universal joint at the hub but the tripod joint at the diff end??
