1: what is the proper way to remove the inner tie rod ends on an EA81 and EA82?
2:just making sure here: All NA manual axles have the same splines regardless of FWD/4wd correct?I know the turbo/auto axles are different.
3: Are the front brakes on an EA81 the same as EA82 front brakes?If not same will they atleast bolt up?

The knuckles have a different roll radius. The calipers have a larger bolt pattern. And the discs are a little bit bigger. Also the rear bearing seal on the knuckle on EA82's are slightly larger, thus why EA82 axles won't work too well in EA81 knuckles.
It will all bolt up, but you will have horrible positive camber.
