Im looking for a photo or two of the underside of a ea82 with the front axles removed and set up for rwd. More or less I want to see what part of the axle was put back in. My terms arent great so I dont really understand when its explained to me. Thanks.

Sorry, can't help with the photo, but...
The part that goes through the hub (which the wheel is bolted to.) It is needed to hold the bearings in place. The rest can go.

Its pretty much the same for EA81 and EA82. I wish i had pix, but i dont. I should do a write-up on the process.

Pretty much all you do is break your CV (yeah, break it). Remove the shaft from the stub that goes through the steering knuckle. You just re-install the stub and drive your car in 4WD. The tranny output shafts will stay exposed and no CV will lead to the knuckle.

The tricky part is seperating the axle shaft from the CV stub.

Drifting is going to be bad for any car and parts... Same with burnouts.

If you drive it "saftly" it will be fine I have heard. If you run a rear LSD it should be ok too, but the LSD puts more strain on all of everything.
