Default R180 diff uses what type of axels?

I'm pretty close to getting an STi six-speed for my 92 SVX. Rather than spend a ton to get R180 3.90 ring and pinion gears and then put them in my present differential, I think that I will just buy an STi rear diff instead.

If it works, that is. Does anyone know if these axles are held in with circlips like the SVX uses, and more importantly if they have the same spline, etc count?

Thanks for any info...

The R180 uses a larger diameter shaft and larger inner/outter joints. The splines are different to that of the R160 diff and shafts. The R180 normally has a vicous LSD(not sure about certain Sti models) and both shafts splines are the same length left and right. The snap rings are inside the diff itself.
