Don't just cut the axle. Remove the whole cage assembly from the cup. Just leave the cup and attached axle piece through the hub. I always keep a couple of these laying around, just in case. I do warn you again that you will be putting lots of extra strain on the diff. I exploded a welded diff with 26" tires.

Also these.

I can't open any of the links.
How does one go about taking out the cage assembly?

 I Think you mean transfer gear.....not the ring gear in the front diff correct???

 

I welded my transfer gear collar rigth to the gear to keep maximum engagement on the teeth in my T-cased rig.......no need to use the FWD option.

 

But that is T-cased not really relavent here.

 

Oops, without actually tearing into the trans I'm sure you're correct

This is what happened to his car.  He emailed me this.

I explained to him how it would be far easier in the long run to just fix it right and be done with it.  RWD is fun, but only if its done right.

That look overextended to me.  Aftermarket tripod joint for sure....but I don't see anything "broken"

 

Does that car have an "over stock" lift??

I'm probably going to do this. So do i need stubs or can i just remove the front axles that attach to the knuckle?

 

You need the outer CV joints so that the wheels roll and your steering works.

So I just bought a 80 hatchback that was converted into a rwd drift machine. The dude before me had taken the innards from a single range loyal tranny and put them into an ej22 bell housing, chopped and welded the front axle nubs and lowered it so it sits about 5 inches off the ground. It's about to have my ej22 dropped in and we shall see how well it actually handles

I fixed the чертовскй cv axle and it broke after half a mile. I think my car was destined to be rwd.

You did something wrong. 

 

Miss one of the rings on that Tripod? 

 

Should....Get rid of the stupid aftermarket crap tripod axle anyhow.

 

Do it right with a good axle and it should not break.
