Rebuilding Axles

I spoke with a guy at http://www.raxles.com/ he does not have any parts so he can not rebuild the stock axles but after talking with him he said he can get newer STI axle parts.

I told him I think there is some interchangeability with the svx but I was not sure exactly how much.

Do any of you know if he could build svx axles using a stock axle and sti joints?

Re: Rebuilding Axles

The hub splines are the same count. Not sure if the axle parts would swap, though.

The differential ends of the shaft are different.

Do you want to email him and see what he could do? He asked me if I know of any workable swaps, I don't know enough about the Subaru axles I only know that the svx hubs will take sti axles.

Those are of poor quality and many times cause vibrations. I'd trust a raxles rebuild for long term repairs. If you need to get by, then do the cheap axle. There's a decent chance they could use STI joints as long as they have the SVX inner and hub parts. Worth a shot. If so, it's a quality option for axles.

i've installed hundreds of those axles, mostly on subarus, and never had any issues.

I've installed at least 5 in SVXes that had horrible vibrations immediately. Granted, I've installed a fair amount that had no issue, at least at time of install, but a Raxles you can pretty much rely on for another 15+ years.

Re: Rebuilding Axles

+1 for raxles.

I put them on my 92 pearlie a year after I bought it and had YT replace them on my 96 polo while he had it in the shop for a new engine.

Definitely a quality product and outstanding customer service.

Re: Rebuilding Axles

I put 2 after market front axles in, both right and left are now aftermarket, I kept my originals they are in the boxes in my garage, I think I will take them with me next time im going to gainsville, make a reason lol and see what he thinks.

I dont think I have any vibrations, but then again my auto trans gives me problems and the rear diff bushings are completely shot.
