Salvaging CV's

Recommended Posts

I believe it's a motor match thing rather than a body or year match thing.

 

As I understand it, an EA81 axle matches to EA81's, years don't matter.

 

EA82 to EA82's.

 

I believe Turbos are an exception to this and have more splines on the axles.

 

Anyone else?

I had an axle go on my T wagon and was worried that I wouldn't be able to find an axle to fit before I had to leave for school. Thankfully I was able to steal one off of my lifted 81 hatch! Thank you subaru for making almost everthing interchangeable!!!

well in reality just about all ea81, ea82, ej series axles are almost the same

i have put ea82 into ea81 and vice versa and fitted ej impreza axles to ea81 as well, turbo axles and non turbo axles are different but ej axles are like turbo ea82, i have a driveshaft from a imprez in my rx wagon, i did it becouse i needed to, it isnt any better, now ej c/v's are better than ea's but not by much

this is either very misleading, or wrong...

i have an ea81. an ea82 axle wont fit on my car"properly" unless i knock off both ends, and put them on the ea81 shaft. i never tired jaming one in there, but the difference in length is visible from a distance.

 

ea81 car, needs ea81 axles. ea82 car needs ea82 axles.

please tell me if im missing something.
