    they are interchangeable . but the jdm axle bearing might need to be replace jdm disk t-series normally run the bigger bearing (twice the width of the drum t-series)

    in saying that. if the axle are still in the bent housing i would check the axles aswell.

    id just search for another t18 diff will be cheaper, disk type bearings will prob cost half the price of another t18 diff.

    i was lead to believe that t18/jdm zenki drum T series axles CANNOT be interchanged with their disc brake counterparts because the housing flanges are different?

    You're right, the flange has a different bolt pattern, but if you're changing the bearing to a double row bearing just replace the flange at the same time. If you don't get the flanges with the housing this could be problematic!

    if the JDM housing your reffering to ran disks, then no, you wont be able to run drums.
    - unless you get the drums redrilled to suit the pattern on the jdm housing.

    best off finding a stock adm t18 housing.
