Got a problem here.... different axels - diffs & LSD
Posted 15 November 2005 - 04:17 AM
Since I have an LSD Diff from an RX and I want to put it in my Legacy instead having open diff, anyway I am pretty sure someone here can help me to answer this...
Look at this picture below -
The problem I have is, I have male - male axels and the diff is female instert into the diff, and the LSD Diff has male shafts (opposite to the one I have on my Legacy) and I can't use the drive shafts because of different connections.
Theory: If i got the rear hub from early legacy that has male splines/shafts on it ready for female drive shafts then the diff is no problem to be installed? Or is it possible to change the inside diff for male drive shafts on the LSD?

I guess I'm confused as to why you don't just use the appropriate axles which match the diff. The splines and everything on the hub should be identical as long as the rear end is the same, ie r160 to 160, etc.

The legacy axles are the same length, that I know for sure. The axle stubs in the legacy (and probably RX) VLSD however are not the same length.
