Difference between 3at and 5mt driveshaft?

Recommended Posts

For an ea82, I’ve read on here that the drive shaft length is the same but the front half of the driveshaft is different - what am I looking for? Swapping a 5mt into an ea81.

With the 5spd you have to make sure the gearbox comes from a carb fed EA82 as these boxes will have the correct diff stub to match your EA81 drive shafts. 

If you get an EFI EA82 box it'll have the larger stub axles like the EJ diff stubs. 

Stick to the carb spec gearbox and you'll be right with the drive shafts ;)
