I've been told that the rear axles on an EA81 hatch are the same as the axles on an EA82 wagon. Before I pull the wrong axles can someone confirm that? Thanks.

the doj and inner bearing pieces will swap vice versa, but the ea82 rear axle is longer than the ea81. this is due to the whole suspension on the ea82 being wider

i have read that the ea82 doj allows for more travel of the axle, a plus if you are mix and matching

right, you can use the ea82 DOJ on both ends of a ea81 rear axle, and get a bit more travel...

but the axles are NOT a direct swap.
