There are manual axles for steel trailing arms, manual axles for aluminum trailing arms, auto axles for steel trailing arms and auto axles for aluminum trailing arms.

Then there are the 87-88 turbo axles.

seven different part numbers.

Auto axles are different lengths per side.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

The CV joints are the same. Depends on what you actually need.

Expect you could find one easily at a junk yard, or try on the parts post.

I thought all of the N/A 5 speed CV axles were the same.
Although, I never tried to swap them around.

The later turbo axles are a replacement for the later manual axles.
