Hey all,

My '86 brat that I got last year already had a 5 speed swap with a trans off what the seller said was an '86 or '87 dual range GL Wagon.

The d/s CV has gone bad and in the market for a new one, am unsure of which new axle to get...one for the '86 brat or one for the trans...or does it even make a difference?

Thanks in advance!

replace it with an original brat axle. the 5 spd dual range trans has the same spline count as the 4spd. But the brat axle is shorter than an ea82 axle.
