Rear CV Axles

Recommended Posts

Good morning all,

Just bought a 1981 GL 4wd and I am having issues finding replacement rear CV axles.

Can anyone point to a vendor or part# I can search?

Thanks, Duane

Don't use CV in association with rear in search because only our fronts use a CV joint on the outer to allow for steering- unless you have four wheel steer ??

Double offset joint DOJ inner on fronts, both ends on rear

Time for me to check locally as some have said rear shafts are available through nationwide parts supplier

Someone recently posted a link to MY/EA81 rear shafts. Can’t remember where I saw it though. 

Cheers

This is good news! I appreciate the input. I found 2 decent used here in Denver. Will be very interested in the links if you guys think of them.

Later EA82s use CVs in the rear halfshafts outer joint, at least in USDM-land.

Same in AUDM. The series one L (85-mid 87 in AUDM) has DOJ on inner and outer for the rear shafts, the series two L (mid 87-94) had only the inner joint with the DOJ arrangement. I’m 99% sure these are interchangeable on the L series.

Yep, they are. EA81/MY use a shorter shaft, but all EA82/L are interchangeable, even though most have an outer CV.
