no they are not the same. just find one in a junk yard, the rears very rarely fail. or call MWE. after market axles are junk, i would avoid them unless you can not.

Rear's are easy to rebuild since they used DOJ's on both ends for most of them. Some of the EA82 rear shafts used a CV outer, but it's easy enough to find the double-DOJ units and just rebuild them.
